Case Number 087018 - Item Number 96 - Body Balance Tester

Description:  The Body Balance Software (BBS) is written in ASYST language to allow collection of electrical signals from the force platform and storage in a Zenith AT hard-disk, mass storage computer during a postural sway test. The BBS is a menu-driven, user-friendly and interactive software which also facilitates quick and accurate force platform computer calibration once a manual and lengthy calibration has been performed by the operator. After the data are collected and stored in the computer, the BBS allows the operator to choose any segment of the data for future processing. The remaining segments of the software utilizes special mathematical equations derived in Dr. Bhattacharya's latest paper for the quantification and graphical representation of center of pressure movement pattern of the test subject during a postural sway test (Bhattacharya, et al., 1987).
