1. Balance

 

Balance control consists of

controlling the body center of mass

over its limits of stability. Clinical

balance assessment can help

assess fall risk and/or determine

the underlying reasons for balance

disorders. The benefits of using

force plates in balance assessment

comes from their ability to measure

center of pressure (CoP).

2. Feet Pressure Map

 

Foot Pressure Mapping is a method of

measuring pressures on the surface

of the foot during standing or

walking. Static and dynamic

baropodometricz analysis are

performed on a baropodometric

platform, through which the

pressure exerted by the

feet from standstill and

during walking is being

measured.

3. Posturography

 

Computerized posturography systems

utilize force platforms to measure the

sway of a patient by determining the

movements of the instantaneous Center

of Pressure (CoP). The CoP data collected

can be visualized through a statokinesigram

and stabilogram.

4. Virtual Reality

 

In the recent decade, Virtual Reality

has become generally accepted

as a therapeutic tool for neurological

patients. VR involves real-time simulation

and interactions between sensory,

motor and cognitive channels. VR can

be set up to be strongly immersive, in

that the environment appears real and

three-dimensional. VR provides an ideal

environment to study the balancing

strategies.

5. Visual Biofeedback

 

Visual Biofeedback is a rehabilitation

method that can be used during static

balance training, offering the patient

visual information on the position of

the center of gravity within the range of

stability as the patient stands on a plate.

It stimulates motivation, proprioceptive

information to the patient, simulates the

body movements and provides valuable

information for the health professional.
