Reliability and Validity of Bertec Computerized Dynamic Posturography
Sensory Organization Test (SOT) quantifies contributions of three sensory systems to postural stability and identifies fall risk. This study evaluated reliability and validity of SOT on a newly available computerized dynamic posturography system (Bertec) compared to the gold standard (NeuroCom). Forty-three adults with normal vestibular function completed testing on both systems over two sessions. Bertec SOT is valid and reliable in this population, but differences in composite scores between Bertec and NeuroCom suggest the systems are not interchangeable.
