Abstract

Context: Postural sway has been identified as a potential marker for measuring concussion severity.1 However, many sports medicine programs cannot afford to purchase force plate systems to assess postural sway. If validated, C3Logix™ could provide a viable alterative to a force plate system at a fraction of the cost. Objective: To determine if the C3Logix™ application is capable of detecting postural sway with the same degree of reliability as the VSR Sport™ by NeuroCom® .2 Study Design: Cross Sectional Analysis Setting: Division I University athletic center. Participants: 45 Division I Lacrosse players, consisting of 27 males (Age = 20.07 ± 1.18 years, Weight = 83.11 ± 6.13 kg, and Height 180.53 ± 5.08 cm) and 18 females (Age = 19.67 ± 1.29 years, Weight = 60.63 ± 5.18kg, and Height 167.64 ± 5.15cm) from one University. Methods: Participants completed the Stability Evaluation Test (SET) on the VSR Sport by NeuroCom® while simultaneously completing the Balance Error Scoring System (BESS) via the C3Logix™ application. Main Outcome Measure: A Pearson correlation was used to compare the ellipse volume recorded through the C3Logix™ to the sway velocity value from the VSR Sport™ Results: A Pearson correlation was used to calculate the correlation between postural sway values from the VSR Sport™ by NeuroCom® and ellipse volume on the C3Logix™ application. Each stance on both the firm and foam surfaces was found to have a strong correlation between postural sway and ellipse volume measures Conclusions: Strong correlations between ellipse volume measures and postural sway values suggest that the C3Logix™ application is a reliable alternative to a gold standard force plate system when assessing postural sway.
