dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this study was to determine the reliability of the Sensory Organization Test in healthy college students. Reliability of the SOT is imperative in order to accurately assess the effectiveness of balance rehabilitation programs. Thirty healthy young adults were recruited from undergraduate classes at the University of Georgia. The participants were tested on all six conditions of the SOT, which alter incoming sensory information. Participants returned to be retested on the SOT after no more than 7 days. Results indicated a significant increase in several scores generated by the SOT between testing sessions. The stability reliability of the SOT was relatively low compared to the internal consistency reliability which was modest to excellent. Clinicians should consider the amount of motor learning that takes place during the SOT when assessing the efficacy of a particular balance intervention using the SOT.
