Jackrabbits News · Forney High School Sports Medicine SWAY Balance Baseline Testing


On Wednesday, August 7, 2019, Forney High School Freshman football players underwent SWAY Balance Baseline Testing which was done by Forney High School Head Athletic Trainer Richard English and Assistant Athletic Trainer David Bowdoin.   SWAY Balance Baseline testing is one component of the Forney ISD Concussion Management Protocol.  It utilizes a balance component and a reaction time component in the baseline test.   ImPACT neurocognitive baseline testing is also utilized as another component.   These two baseline tests provide useful information which helps FHS Athletic Trainers and physicians manage and monitor the healing process should a concussion occur with an athlete.
