Do all iPhones have the same accelerometer?

The iPhone 4, iPhone 5, 4th and 5th generation iPod Touch all use the STMicroelectronics LIS331DLH accelerometer. Therefore, the testing results will remain consistent within one’s profile regardless of the device used during individual testing sessions.

How many times should I conduct initial testing?

We recommend testing each individual 3 to 4 times to establish an accurate baseline measurement. Multiple tests during initial testing familiarize both the patient and the instructor to the testing process.

How many times should I perform post-injury testing?

Because both the patient and the instructor have completed the testing procedure during baseline testing, it is acceptable to complete only one test during each post-injury evaluation session. Keep in mind that an individual who has sustained an injury may be evaluated for multiple consecutive days before being allowed to return to play.

What are the standards for balance measurement using Sway Balance?

Currently, Sway’s balance test is designed for comparison between an individual’s established baseline score and his or her current score. A medical professional can then analyze the deviation between scores to determine appropriate action. Sway is intended to serve as an objective measurement of balance, not as a diagnostic or determinant of any specific medical condition.

Post-injury, what does the averaged overall score indicate?

The averaged overall score is best used in establishing an accurate baseline measurement by averaging the scores from the initial baselines tests. Post-injury, averaging pre and post injury scores does not necessarily generate a score for comparison or measurement. However, each post-injury score provides more detailed information by touching on the specific data point. The graph allows medical professionals to easily track post-injury scores and identify trends within that individual.

Can Sway Balance be used to diagnose specific conditions?

The Sway System is intended to assess sway as an indicator of balance and reaction time as a measure of cognitive function. The system is not intended to diagnose or treat any medical condition or disease. It is designed to provide an affordable, convenient, and portable screening tool for balance assessment and should not replace an evaluation by a medical professional.

Can I use Sway Balance on an iPad?

You can use Sway Balance on any iOS device, including the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. When downloading on the iPad, search for Sway Balance under the iPhone apps tab. The iPhone version of the app can be used on any iOS device.
