Kevin Dames and Mark Sutherlin, Kinesiology Department, along with collaborators from Colorado State University, had their paper titled “Setting boundaries: Utilization of time to boundary for objective evaluation of the balance error scoring system” published in Journal of Sports Sciences.This work outlined the strengths of quantitative balance assessments in a common concussion evaluation protocol, which has traditionally been scored subjectively. Introducing data from a portable force platform better characterized balance performance across trial conditions and can eliminate potential bias, low specificity, and low sensitivity inherent in subjective concussion testing.
