BESS Balance Mat

The BESS Balance Mat is used by sporting organisations and allied health professionals for the baseline screening and concussion monitoring of athletes. The system builds on the traditional stances of the Balance Error Scoring System (BESS) but omits the foam normally used in favour of the 6mm thick rubber computerised mat. It enables three 20-second balance tests with the person’s eyes closed while standing in the normal, tandem and one-legged, dominant-foot stances. To see photographs of the testing stances you can visit the BESS Balance Mat page on the manufacturer’s website.

Associate Professor in Physiotherapy from Flinders University Dr James McLoughlin advised on the development of the BESS Balance Mat, which is being used alongside Neuroflex virtual reality headsets testing members of the North Adelaide Football Club – a leader in concussion management. James and the team have been using the BESS Balance Mat in this way since December 2022.
