We came up with something unique for older and frail adults, a continuously increasing population. This project shows how health technology really can make a difference in people's daily lives. The instrumented Balance Test started by assessing infrared-based camera systems for collecting kinematics data. First validations involved over twenty health professionals and nearly 2000 older adults in the first three years.
Project start: 2016 - ongoing
Since the genesis of this project, it is now easy to measure full-body kinematics with an easy to use sensor and software. Measurements lead to the development of an algorithm that is implemented into the software. This software gives users accurate insight into postural control and fall risk in an elderly population. The system is operational in only few minutes of setting up and delivers direct insights for healthcare workers and older adults.
