Balance control is commonly affected following concussion. Clinical balance assessments often lack objectivity and are less able to detect subtle motor system impairments after concussion than more sophisticated, laboratory-based assessments of balance control. However, such laboratory-based assessments require highly trained personnel, extensive space demands, and a large budget which is not available in most athletic training settings. Thus, we plan to describe emerging evidence which describes objective ways to measure balance control using body-worn sensors that are clinically feasible.
