The innovative posturography recording and analysis system

posturography quantifies postural control in stance in static or dynamic conditions.

Posturography (CDP) is an assessment technique used to quantify the central nervous system´s adaptive mechanisms (sensory, motor and central) involved in the control of posture and balance, i.e.  in physical education and sports training.

Regular posturography systems measure the time course of the Centre of Force (CoF). However, the shift of the CoF in the x and y direction over time is calculated from the total force measured under both feet and does not describe the exact participation of each foot.

By measuring the pressure distribution underneath the feet the posturo system allows not only to measure the force balance between the left and the right foot but also to determine which part of the foot is contributing to the balance. This is possible because the forces are calculated from many sensors arranged in a sensor matrix. Local forces such as those under the forefoot or toes and heels can be measured, hence allowing to analyse how much they contribute to the dynamic balance of the body.
The posturo software calculates a variety of parameters such as CoF/CoP, forces in masks, time processes, direction of motion, numerical excentricity, area of CoF/CoP motion and many more.

It is also possible to track the CoP of each individual foot in bipedal stance mode to analyse the motor function individually and compare with unipedal stance.
