The Star Approach:

 

          Step 1: Pre-season performance baselines


                              - Neuro-psychological testing


                              - Balance performance testing (Computerized

                                Dynamic Posturography; EquiTest®)


                               - Static and dynamic vision testing (inVisionTM)


         Step 2: On field injury assessment


                               - Romberg


                               - Modified CTSIB


                               - Oculomotor exam (smooth pursuit, saccades,

                                 gaze evoked nystagmus, head shake, head thrust)


         Step 3: Post-injury performance testing


                               - Neuro-psychological testing


                               - Balance performance testing


                               - Perception time, static and dynamic vision testing


                               - Cardio-vascular tolerance
