The Relationship Between Hip Strength and the Y Balance Test

Benjamin R. Wilson, Kaley E. Robertson, Jeremy M. Burnham, Michael C. Yonz, Mary Lloyd Ireland, and Brian Noehren

methods that identify individuals who may be at greatest risk for lower-extremity injury. One such method, the Y Balance Test, was developed by simplifying the Star Excursion Balance Test (SEBT) by reducing it to 3 directions (anterior, posterolateral, and posteromedial), and providing standardized

Performance Differences Between the Modified Star Excursion Balance Test and the Y-Balance Test in Individuals With Chronic Ankle Instability

Jupil Ko, Erik Wikstrom, Yumeng Li, Michelle Weber, and Cathleen N. Brown

Balance impairments are linked to an increased risk of injury in those with a history of a lateral ankle sprain and chronic ankle instability (CAI). 1 , 2 The Star Excursion Balance Test (SEBT) is one of the most common dynamic balance tests used to identify balance deficits in individuals with

Comparison of the Y-Balance Test and Star Excursion Balance Test: Utilization of a Discrete Event Simulation

Emily H. Gabriel, Cameron J. Powden, and Matthew C. Hoch

functional tasks, have been implemented specifically to identify associations with lower-extremity injury occurrence. Two of the more established lower-extremity injury screening assessments include the Star Excursion Balance Test (SEBT) and Y-Balance Test (YBT). 7 , 8 Both the SEBT and YBT are lower

Predicting Lower Quarter Y-Balance Test Performance From Foot Characteristics

Nicole J. Chimera and Mallorie Larson

The lower quarter Y-Balance Test (YBT-LQ) is a clinical movement screening test aimed at assessing dynamic balance. The YBT-LQ utilizes unilateral stance while reaching in 3 reach directions: anterior, posteromedial, and posterolateral to assess both a composite reach score and asymmetry assessment

Reliability of Y Balance Test in Runners With Intellectual Disability

Ghada Jouira, Haithem Rebai, and Sonia Sahli

Balance Test (SEBT). 9 It measures the ability to maintain single-leg stance on 1 leg, while the contralateral leg reaches as far as possible in 8 directions. The Y Balance Test (YBT), a version of the SEBT, has been widely used in athletes with typical development as a screening method for dynamic

Validation of Dance-Specific Balance Test: Evidence From Comparisons Between Dancers and Nondancers

Muhammad Ridhuan Johari, Ying Hwa Kee, and Pui Wah Kong

Dance-specific Balance Test (DBT). While the literature generally concurs that dancing has potential value for enhancing postural control in both dancers and nondancers ( Alpert et al., 2009 ; Ambegaonkar et al., 2013 ), most of such studies relied on generic balance assessment tools that are devoid of

The Star Excursion Balance Test: An Update Review and Practical Guidelines

Brice Picot, Romain Terrier, Nicolas Forestier, François Fourchet, and Patrick O. McKeon

Key Points ▸ The modified Star Excursion Balance Test (mSEBT) should be used as a reliable clinical tool to assess dynamic postural control. We propose a compact version of the mSEBT for clinicians. ▸ All three directions as well as the composite score should be evaluated independently. ▸ Procedure

Dynamic Leap and Balance Test: Ability to Discriminate Balance Deficits in Individuals With Chronic Ankle Instability

Abbis H. Jaffri, Thomas M. Newman, Brent I. Smith, Giampietro L. Vairo, Craig R. Denegar, William E. Buckley, and Sayers J. Miller

, such as quiet standing on force plates in laboratory settings, or using the Balance Error Scoring System in clinical settings. 8 – 10 However, because of the difference in task constraints involved in static and dynamic balance activities, static balance tests may not provide relevant information

The Relationship Between Concentric Hip Abductor Strength and Performance of the Y-Balance Test (YBT)

Peter Francis, Kay Gray, and Nic Perrem

Key Points ▸ Hip abductor strength is moderately associated with single-leg dynamic balance as measured by the Y-Balance test (YBT). ▸ The association between hip strength and single-leg dynamic balance is strongest during the posterior reaches of the YBT. ▸ The requirement for greater hip flexion

Assessing Balance in an Athletic Population: Normative Data for the Concussion Balance Test (COBALT©)

Shelly L. Massingale, Amy D. Alexander, Steven M. Erickson, Elizabeth S. McQueary, Richard D. Gerkin, Sarah B. Schodrof, Haroon M. Kisana, and Jamie E. Pardini

Key Points ▸ COBALT is a high-level balance test designed for athletes ages 10–18. ▸ COBALT includes both active head shake and visual motion sensitivity tasks. ▸ Error and sway scores provide objective measurement of balance. Traditional management of concussion or mild traumatic brain injury
