Getting a baseline balance measurement of your patients can help you stratify them into high, moderate and low risk for falling, which will help inform their treatment plan and follow on recommendations, including suggested frequency of further testing.

Rather like with weight loss, those at high risk of falling will benefit from shorter feedback cycles between tests to help adjust treatment plans and reinforce positive momentum.

Balance can change frequently in response to quality of sleep, exercise patterns and medications, so more frequent testing can be especially useful for patients at high risk of falling.
