Abstract
Balance is required for many functional activities of
daily life. Qualitative or quantitative balance assessment
is frequently used in the diagnosis of
neuro-muscular diseases, in treatment or therapy monitoring,
and for performance assessment in sports training programs.
In the last years, various technologies were developed for balance
or posture analysis with the main focus on sensors and
reliability of the measurements. We discuss the questions related
with the development of a balance assessment system,
which might facilitate the design or selection of components
for balance sensing and training.
