POSSIBILITIES OF USING NEUROCOME BALANCE MASTER PLATFORM FOR BALANCE ASSESSMENT AFTER KNEE INJURY
Marija Trajkov, Nenad Nedović, Ljiljana Šimpraga
Due to its complex and fine structure, the knee joint is less resistant to the influence of external factors, which is why knee injuries often occur in sports. Knee joint injuries lead to mechanical and functional instability. Lately there have been significant innovative advancements in diagnostics, inoperative and surgical treatment of knee injuries and diseases. Technological progress has enabled objective assessment by means of computerized techniques, namely kinesiometric platforms. The possibilities of using such systems in sports are of high importance, especially in assessments of injuries, in evaluation and comparison of treatments, but also in forecasting lower limb injuries and the potential risk of falling down. The aim of this paper is to conduct a review of the research based on the insight in the available literature, where NeuroCom Balance Master kinesiometric platform was used as the research instrument, and to determine the possibility of its clinical application on knee joint injury. The available literature was reviewed by insight into electronic databases (EBSCO Medline, EBSCO host, ScienceDirekt, ProQuest), which are available via the Serbian Library Consortium for Coordinated Acquisition (KoBSon).
