Balance disorders analysis in static conditions


In static conditions, posturographie is used to appreciate the quality of subject's muscular tone regulation system; this analysis is made by using a force platform constituted by a stiff tray which rests on several strengths sensors and a computer capable at any time to display the position of the center of podales pressures of the subject.

By making the statement of this position several times per second, the computer draws in real time the path followed by this projection in the screen, this path is called statokinesigram.

This path will allow automated calculation of a certain number of normalized parameters, length, surface, amplitudes and oscillations frequencies ; which will inform us about the subject's abilities to maintain its orthostatic balance.
