Balance Matters® is an evaluation and treatment system that includes a measuring tool on the mats used for the assessment of specific gait parameters, namely step length and step width. Evaluation findings can be directly transferred to treatment
and be used to establish objective monitoring of progress. Multisensory feedback tests and challenges the sensory systems for balance is provided through varied textured footprints, auditory feedback, and varied foam densities. Qualified healthcare
professionals assess an individual’s balance and gait to determine if the area(s) of deficits are in anticipatory postural adjustments, dynamic gait, sensory orientation, equilibrium strategies, or a combination of the above. Once the area(s)
of balance dysfunction are identified, a customized objective program is created to improve balance and gait.
