BALANCE ASSESSMENT USING COMPUTERIZED STATIC POSTUROGRAPHY
Equilibrum is a complex process. Combined visual, somatosensory and vestibular inputs are required in order to maintain the body balance. Any dysfunction in one of these channels may lead to vertigo and imbalance.
Computerized static posturography can be used to assess the contribution of these sensory channels in the patient’s balance, calculating each sensory coefficient (visual, somatosensory, vestibular).
