How do I reset my password?
Your password can be reset through the web portal located at my.swaybalance.com/account/forgot.
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.
Can I view the tutorials without purchasing the app or logging into my account?
Tutorials are accessible through the Sway Balance app on your mobile device by choosing the “Help” section from the tab in the upper left hand corner. You can also access training materials on our YouTube channel at youtube.com/sway. If the tutorials do not answer your questions, please feel free to contact us via email and a customer support representative will respond within 24 business day hours.
Can I group the profiles into categories (i.e. by sport)?
The grouping feature is a great way to organize profiles and keep track of multi-level user access. You can label groups by any preferred naming structure including sport, team name, or organization. Administrators can also control which groups users can access.
How do I add users?
Every health care professional should be assigned a user account. Additional users added at a different date than the initial user will receive a prorated rate from the initial user’s anniversary date or date of purchase. You can create new user accounts from the web portal by logging into your account at my.swaybalance.com.
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, the Sway Balance System is designed for comparison between an individual’s established baseline score and his or her post-injury score. A medical professional can then analyze the deviation between scores to determine appropriate action. The Sway Balance System is intended to serve as an objective measurement of sway as one component of injury. Normative comparisons are currently being developed to evaluate an individual without a baseline.
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 Balance system is intended to assess sway as an indicator of balance, particularly when screening for deviations in postural sway as a possible symptom. 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.
I already use a tool for baseline and post-concussion testing. How would Sway Balance benefit me?
There are many different facets to concussion evaluation and management including cognitive function, orientation and postural balance, memory, exertion, and neurological symptoms. Sway Balance provides objective measurements of balance symptoms in a variety of settings due to its portable feature. The app has been proven to be as accurate as more expensive and non-portable force plate tools when measuring balance.
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.
