The BOARD project aims to research, develop, and validate a rehabilitation system for static and dynamic balance intended for subjects with balance disorders derived from neurological diseases. The system will use balance platforms to allow subjects to interact through weight transferences. Instrumentation will be low-cost and easy to transport to facilitate the integration of the system in the clinical setting. The system will include a management tool to manage a database of participants’ data, to examine their progression, and to configure customized sessions. The BOARD project will also involve a study of the clinical efficacy of the system in individuals with acquired brain injury.
