The Balance Squat Test’s outcome parameters


The Balance Squat assesses dynamic balance, detects asymmetries, predicts injury risk, and supports RTS decisions after ACL injuries or reconstruction.

The Balance Squat is aimed at assessing dynamic balance and movement quality, in particular detecting asymmetries and imbalances between the ipsilateral and contralateral side. In addition, it is possible to predict the probability of injury and establish a baseline as a decision-making aid for Return to Sport (RTS), for example after anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries or ACL reconstruction . 

The primary outcome of the Balance Squat is Balance Point & Sway Area (Fig-1, left). In this example, the Balance Point & Sway Area look similar on both sides, which is confirmed by the numerical value of the Sway Area (Fig-1, middle).

Examples of further test parameters are Squat-Up Dynamics and Squat Execution Time (Fig-1, right), which relate to the impulse for the time needed to extend the leg and to the total time needed for bending and extending the leg. These parameters show differences between the right and left side. 

These ReGo parameters, along with others, assist therapists and trainers in obtaining a deeper understanding of their patients’ individual status, enabling them to make more informed decisions during the RTS process.
