“VSTBalance really adds value…from the residents’ perspective, I would say, in ensuring they are as independent and happy and healthy as possible. One of our goals was to get as many of our residents on board as possible. And what we’ve seen is that our residents are excited to use it. They’re knocking on therapy’s door.”
Keegan Sawyer | Health Center Administrator, Sedgebrook
“You could have the most skilled therapists in the world do all these evaluations, but they’re not going to be able to obtain this data.”
Tom Erickson | Director of Clinical Services, HVA
“For us, VSTBalance offers a unique way to capture potential fall risks as well as gather data that we’ve never had access to before. We have great therapists—some of the best in my opinion—but there’s only so much that the naked eye can catch.”
Lindsey Canchola | Regional Director of Marketing, Presbyterian Senior Care

What is VSTBalance?
VSTBalance is an automated fall-risk assessment tool that allows for proactive, long-term fall prevention. The system uses artificial intelligence and machine vision to objectively identify deficits in balance, gait, and function—the three leading indicators of fall-risk, without intra- or inter-rater reliability issues.
The system automatically generates reports after each assessment. Clinicians can use this objective data to create more effective care plans and route residents or patients to personalized home exercises, wellness, and/or therapy for long-term fall prevention.
