This mobility test has never before been investigated as a sole source of data for fall risk assessment.  ...  This paper presents a fall risk assessment approach based on a fast mobility test, automatically evaluated using a low-cost, scalable system for the recording and analysis of body movement.  ...  The most widely used method for such quantitative evaluations of balance deficit is static posturography, which analyses sways with the subject in a quiet stance.  ...

Identifying people based on pressure board measurements

Samarth Lakhatariya
Towards this end, we designed and implemented a system utilizing the Wii Balance Board. When a user steps on the board, we can obtain weight distribution and center of pressure.  ...  These can be used to train our model and based on it, we can identify a user. We tested our system using dataset obtained from 19 volunteers. The presented approach has accuracy of 97%.  ...  They used three sensors inside the shoe sole and a miniature gyroscope attached to the shoe sole. The sensors measures the applied pressure and the gyroscope is used to measure rotational velocity.  ...
