Assessment Protocols

TRAZER’s Senior Application focuses on the objective assessment and training of functional activities, including: stability, agility, reaction time, and movement skills associated with everyday life.

TRAZER tracks and measures performance of the lowest amplitude movements, such as simple stance stability, to the most demanding and complex movement requirements. Regular use of the TRAZER application develops coordination, balance and mobility, leading to greater freedom. The use of TRAZER also enhances sensory perceptive skills, visual acuity, sequencing, multitasking, and the ability to follow instructions/random cues.

TRAZER’S Fall Prevention Test combines an objective assessment of the individual’s balance, pre and post exertion, with a reaction-based multi directional 2 minute test.

Fall Prevention Test:

Objective TRAZER BESS Test:
Bilateral, Unilateral and Tandem balance are each performed first on a firm surface, then on a balance cushion.
The Graded Test:
Prompts the subject to move to random cues in every direction at a steady 1 foot per second for 2 minutes.
Objective TRAZER BESS Test:
Bilateral, Unilateral and Tandem balance are each performed first on a firm surface, then on a balance cushion.

This application includes Activities designed to enhance Balance, Motility and Cognition:

Balance:

Balance 1:
Includes multi-directional movement to random cues, mini-lateral lunges, side-stepping, and forward and backward walking to begin to build strength and balance.
Balance 2:
Advances movement challenges to include more spontaneous reactions to random cues and T-Drill. Continues to build strength and reaction time.
Balance 3:
Adds a Box Drill pattern to more advanced distances to build strength and reaction time.

Mobility:

Mobility 1:
Works a series of forward, backward and side to side and diagonal movements to build coordination and strength.
Mobility 2:
Repeats Level 1, increasing the time spent on each activity to build strength and endurance.
Mobility 3:
Increases time on each activity to build further strength and endurance.

Cognition:

Cognitive 1:
Move to the random cues while matching your movement speed to the analog and digital meters. Objective measurement of reaction time, and quality of directional movement assessment. Level 1 lasts for 1 minute at 1 foot per second.
Cognitive 2:
Repeats Level 1 for 3 minutes. At the 2-minute mark, speed demand increases to 2 feet per second.
Cognitive 3:
Repeats Level 2 for 5 minutes. At the 2-minute mark, speed demand increases to 2 feet per second. At the 4-minute mark, it increases to 3 feet per second.
