Imbalance is a hallmark sign of concussion. The Timed Tandem Gait (TTG) is used to evaluate balance function, however no normative data exists for individuals younger than 16. The goal of this research was to provide normative data for younger athletes and establish the reliability of the TTG. Preliminary results demonstrate a significant decrease in TTG time with age and over the season. These results suggest that TTG time should be established annually.
