Baseline Concussion Assessment.
Sitrin’s Equili·BRAIN·ium program uses a baseline concussion assessment, which is a snapshot of a person’s balance and cognitive thinking that can be analyzed with post-concussion results after a head injury to recover more effectively and efficiently. Using a force plate system, trained concussion management specialists run several balance evaluations and ask specific questions regarding the person’s thought process during the assessment.
Fall Risk Assessments.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CSC), injuries, both fatal and nonfatal, among older adults are caused by falls and each year, one in three older adults fall.
A fall risk assessment is an evaluation of a person’s current level of physical function and risk of falling. Results from the assessment allow professionals to design a personal intervention program to reduce the person’s fall risk, or help return them to normal physical function after a fall or injury. The fall risk assessment can be referred to in order to improve health and prevent injury in the future.
Baseline concussion assessments for local sports teams are conducted at no charge through Sitrin’s Equili·BRAIN·ium program. Concussion management specialists can test groups of athletes rapidly. Sitrin has collaborated with Herkimer County Community College’s physical therapist's assistant program to equip them to administer baseline concussion assessments to local teams at no cost.
