Analysis of the postures equilibrium by means of the cuantification test used in the clinical practice
AbstractEvaluation of posture and equilibrium is a very important task in rehabilitation process for neurological patients and elderly people. Several tests, especially PASS test, are performed by physiotherapists and medical staff, with subjective results also instruments for posturography are expensive. In this paper we propose the posture evaluation with Kinect® sensor and DEMOVA software, through the calculus of maximum amplitude, speed and total path length performed by the user in the PASS test execution. Results were encouraging and the analysis must be extended to neurological disorders.
