TRAZER’s 5 key reports for each assessment and rehabilitation protocol highlight functional movement imbalances that may be caused by orthopedic issues or cognitive issues, such as: stroke, concussion, Parkinson’s Disease, and more.
Whether the subject is an athlete tracking performance improvements, someone who has suffered an injury or an extended illness, TRAZER Assessments compare his movement data over time to show progression or degradation.
If a TRAZER healthy baseline assessment is part of the record, it can be used post injury to assist the physician in return-to-play or work decisions. An injured baseline assessment early in the rehab process, followed by periodic assessments, shows progress over time.
ONE: TRAZER BESS TEST
Objectively tracks and quantifies the subject’s Balance Error Scoring System. The subject assumes (3) different postures, each for 20 seconds, while standing on firm ground, then repeats the same postures on a soft foam pad. TRAZER objectively quantifies errors a clinician would (subjective), and adds a stability measurement in inches that the traditional BESS approach does not.
TWO: THE COMPARE REPORT
TRAZER tracks the subject’s movement in multiple directions and reports REACTION TIME, SPEED, ACCELERATION, DECELERATION, and HEART RATE in each vector to objectively compare day-to-day patient progress. The column on the far right features a color-coded % of difference from DAY to DAY with RED indicating a deficit, and GREEN an improvement.
THREE: THE SCORECARD
Provides measures that can be used to motivate the subject and track progress, including the number of targets hit, the total distance traveled, the avg and max speed in miles per hour and calories burned. The right-hand column highlights % deficits in RED, and improvements in GREEN.
FOUR: THE VECTOR REPORT
Shows directional movement data as a graph. (4) movement directions are reported; the (4) diagonal measures can be added with a simple click. Lateral (L / R) movement data comparisons are given, and the percent deficit is calculated, providing the clinician with a clear picture documenting patient movement imbalances.
FIVE: THE TIMELINE REPORT
The TIMELINE is used during TRAZER’s Graded Test to illustrate the effects of a gradually increased speed on heart rate, reaction time, acceleration, and deceleration. This performance data can be compared from time to time to indicate patient improvements or degradations.
Example of Normative Ranges for the Data that Trazer Reports
Use TRAZER to measure REACTION TIME, 1ST STEP QUICKNESS, AGILITY AND STAMINA. TRAZER can help to identify performance deficits as well as design and manage performance enhancement and injury prevention programs.
