Balance & Mobility Assessment

The cornerstone of our approach to mobility assessments revolves around the Balance and Mobility Assessment (BMAT). The BMAT is a tailored mobility assessment developed by OccHealth Physiotherapy.

The BMAT is comprised of a series of balance and mobility tasks. Each task has undergone rigorous scientific assessment resulting in a determined relation between performance on the task and lower limb or core strength.

Lower limb and core strength are directly related to falls risk. So the result of the BMAT provides us with the falls risk of the individual assessed.

The BMAT takes around 20-30mins to complete and is able to be completed by individuals of all mobility levels. We will use the BMAT as a guide to the areas that require more attention and it will help guide the development of each individuals’ program.

We can then return to the BMAT once the program is underway to determine how much improvement has occurred and whether a falls risk is still evident.

As with all our treatment, the BMAT can be administered in the clinic or at home depending on an individuals’ capacity.
