University to study Balance Mat

The University of Canberra (UC) has entered a research relationship with PSI under the Innovation Vouchers Program to test the Balance Mat against other methods of balance measurement.

Associate Professor Jamie Gaida and Assistant Professor Wayne Spratford from the UC Faculty of Health will lead a study that will document the reproducibility of measurements obtained from the Balance Mat against existing measures of postural balance such as force platforms, motion analysis and the Lord Swaymeter or FallScreen test.

The research will last for 50 minutes per participant and aim to provide independent validation of PSI’s Balance Mat against these other methods of measuring balance.

Where possible this work will use participants from clinical populations with a high falls risk and aim to distinguish between individuals with good and poor postural balance.
