The Star Balance Training System gives you the tools you need to easily quantify and plot your balance score at home in a visual form that’s simple to understand. Invented, developed and designed in Canada by a team of physicians, physiotherapists and engineers!
Patient / Individual Use at Home
Whether you’re recovering from an injury, procedure or training for self-improvement, if you aren’t measuring your balance regularly, you can’t see your progress. Know what works and what doesn’t by quantifying your balance using the Star Balance Training Mat and tracking your progress using the included ONPoint Web-App.
Therapist / Practitioner Use in Clinic
The Star Balance System gives you the tools you need to bring objective balance assessment into your practice. The extensively researched Star Excursion Balance Test is a simple 8-point single leg reach test that provides quantitative evidence of a subject’s balance ability that can be visualized as a web-diagram and used as a communication tool to engage your clients in their rehab/training. A larger and more symmetric web-diagram indicates better balance – it’s that simple. The Star Balance Training Mat eliminates the setup and maintenance burdens associated with the original ‘tape-on-the-floor’ SEBT method, providing a simple tool that occupies 10% of the clinic space of the traditional test. Additionally, its familiar ‘yoga-mat’ form allows it to be rolled up and taken on-the-go or stored out of the way when not in use.
The ONPoint Web-App ($250 annually) gives you access to your clients’ personal accounts so that you can score tests with them each time they visit and automatically plot the numerical results for use as a visual communication aid. Keep patients engaged with their rehab/training by allowing them to ‘see’ their balance improve; and encourage them to monitor their results and continue scoring themselves on their own Star Balance Training Mats from home using their free personal ONPoint Web-App accounts. The abstract nature of Balance makes it difficult for clients to understand and set improvement targets. The Star Balance System is here to help.
