Off-field Assessment - Step 4 - Coordination and Balance Examination

Step 4 of the off-field SCAT6© assesses coordination and balance.

This includes a modified version of the Balance Error Scoring System (BESS). The modified BESS has three measurements – double leg stance, single leg stance and tandem stance. In addition athletes are required to undertake a timed tandem gait test. There is an additional element of dual task gait.
