Reference:Gribble PA, et al Using the Star Excursion Balance Test to assess dynamic postural-control deficits and outcomes in lower extremity injury: a systematic review. J Athl Train. 2012 May-Jun;47(3):339-57.
In the past decade a number of studies have investigated the Star Excursion Balance Test (SEBT). Researchers and clinicians have suggested that the SEBT can be used to reliably measure dynamic postural-control and help predict the risk of lower extremity injuries.
The systematic review concludes, “The SEBT has been shown to be a reliable measure and has validity as a dynamic test to predict risk of lower extremity injury.”
