Abstract

A low cost, reliable system that allows for quantification of the stabilising behaviour of subjects on a POSTUROMEO platform was developed. This was achieved with an ordinary mouse connected to the RS232 interface of a standard PC. The system can be set up and used within minutes. The modular structure of the software facilitates customisation to a variety of measurement protocols. The system is well suited to quantify stabilising behaviour with an maximum relative error of less than 2 %.
