Current clinical concussion assessments do not evaluate patients in a manner that mimics the demand of the real world. Balance is impaired after concussion, but it is assessed in static, unrealistic conditions. By observing patterns in how healthy and concussed individuals respond in performing common, yet complex locomotive tasks, we hope to better detect persistent neuromuscular control deficits that persist for years post-concussion.
