Hello fellow Biomch-lers,

My inquiry concerns any experience which some of our
readership may have had with clinical and/or research measures of
standing balance. We (Univ. of Central Arkansas) are investigating
the purchase of a standing balance measurement system.
While we have the expertise here to build a system, the time
requirements for such an undertaking are prohibitive. Therefore,
we would appreciate any !!! information which some of the Biomch-l
membership could offer concerning a commercially available
standing balance measurement system.
The major specifics that I am interested in would be the
following:
Availability of source code to modify either the data
collection or the display.
Diagrams concerning the hardware.
Durability.
Versatility (i.e., clinical, educational and research
use)

Thanks for your assistance, in advance.
