Assessment 1: SOLEC Test
Your ability to balance depends on three main factors: your inner ear; sensory receptors in the muscles, tendons, fascia, and joints; and eyesight. The SOLEC Test removes the last factor from the equation, forcing the others to carry the weight. The Test will give us a good indication of how well they are working.
