Hi All,

A brief search of this forum has indicated that some members have experience of using the wii balance boards as a cheap alternative to force plates e.g.

Though I note that there were some concerns with regards to getting the data collection to be synchronous if using multiple wii balance boards. As the posts are now somewhat old, I was wondering if anyone has managed to successfully use 2 or more wii balance boards synchronously?

I am also curious what sort of information is available through the wii balance boards? I have seen quite a bit of content regarding CoP and I presume that the magnitude of the force can be quantified. However, I have no idea if force be broken down in to x,y,z components?


Any help or advice will be greatly appreciated.
Many thanks
Dan
