The SMART EquiTest® system utilizes a dynamic force plate with rotation and translation capabilities to quantify the vertical forces exerted through the patient’s feet to measure center of gravity position and postural control; and a dynamic visual surround to measure the patient’s use of visual information to maintain balance. It provides assessment and retraining capabilities with visual biofeedback on either a stable or unstable support surface and in a stable or dynamic visual environment.

During the testing you will be asked to walk or stand in various conditions. With eyes open and closed and on different surfaces. This is used to determine how well your sensory systems are working together to maintain balance.
It is unlikely that you will feel dizzy during this part of the test but you may lose your balance.
