SMARTfit’s 24 Dual Task Cost Tests Take 5 Minutes and Provide Instant Reporting
Unique to SMARTfit, these 24 tests of strength, balance and gait measure the loss of performance when executing these tasks while concurrently doing an unrelated cognitive task.
This loss of performance while doing the cognitive and physical tasks together is called the dual task cost and it indicates a persons risk of cognitive and/or motor decline. By tracking dual task cost periodically while engaging in training, it is easy to tell how effective the training is.
This video shows an example of how a test is conducted as well as how to use the instant report generated to interpret cognitive and motor weaknesses. It also provides a guide on which SMARTfit pre-designed programs would best help to address these weaknesses.
Periodic retesting will provide detailed graphs on the progress being made.
