Learn why bipodal balance is crucial in clinical practice, particularly in the fields of physical therapy, rehabilitation, and sports medicine.

Bipodal balance refers to the ability of an individual to maintain a stable posture while standing on two feet. Traditionally, bipodal balance has been assessed using subjective methods, especially in neurology and gerontology, such as the Berg Balance Scale, the Timed Up and Go test, and the Clinical Test of Sensory Integration of Balance. However, these methods have several limitations, including inter-rater variability, lack of sensitivity, and inability to capture the subtle changes in balance that occur during daily activities. As a result, objective measurement devices, such as force plates, are becoming increasingly popular in clinical practice.

Download this e-book to learn how force plates augment bipodal balance evaluations — and how they can provide valuable insights into a patient’s physical health.
