Abstract

This paper presents a low cost system for the assessment, diagnosis and training of balance based on static posturography and functional electrical stimulation (FES). This system includes low cost technology as the Wii Fit Balance Board and the Kinect. The posturography is a complementary tool to clinical diagnosis, and allows to find sensory systems and inputs degraded by different pathologies. The presented system also allows to explore new rehabilitation techniques based on functional electrical stimulation. Precisely, this paper describes the implementation of a novel balance and posture control rehabilitation approach based on muscle synergies.
