Comparison of a Mobile Technology Application With the Balance Error Scoring System
A strong inverse correlation was found between the scores for the two balance assessment methods, and advances in technology have provided an attractive means to objectively quantify postural balance with off-the-shelf mobile consumer electronic devices.
Validation of measures from the smartphone sway balance application: a pilot study.
Results of this study are promising, as balance score derived from the Smartphone accelerometers were consistent with balance scores obtained from a previously validated balance system, however, further investigation is necessary as this version of the mobile software only assessed balance in the anterior/posterior direction.
Reliability of isokinetic strength and aerobic power testing for patients with chronic heart failure.
The data suggest that in a population of patients with CHF, a familiarization trial for skeletal muscle strength testing is necessary, and VO(2peak) declined markedly in the 3-month period for which these patients were followed.
Test-Retest Reliability of the SWAY Balance Mobile Application
Results indicate that SWAY provides excellent overall reliability, however, it may be appropriate to have subjects perform a familiarization trial at the beginning of each testing session, as well as demonstrate a ceiling effect when assessing balance improvements in those who already demonstrate good balance.
A comparative study: tongue muscle performance in weightlifters and runners
Findings suggest that exercise mode may differentially impact performance patterns of nontargeted bulbar muscles, and better understand the mechanisms underlying tongue muscle performance differences between weightlifters and runners.
