Short Description of Instrument
The Sensory Organization Test (SOT) was originally developed as part of the Computerized Dynamic Posturography (CDP) from Neurocom. The test objectively identifies abnormalities in the patient's use of the three sensory systems that contribute to postural control: somatosensory, visual and vestibular.
Scoring
During the SOT, useful information delivered to the patient's eyes, feet and joints is effectively eliminated through calibrated "sway referencing" of the support surface and/or visual surround, which tilt to directly follow the patient's anteroposterior body sway.
