Posturography

Computerized Dynamic Posturography (CDP) is a balance, stability, and fall risk assessment that quantifies a person’s ability to maintain balance by measuring their postural sway movements captured by computer software while the person stands on hard and soft surface balance platforms.

Posture and balance are important in everyday activities, as well as sports activities.  Increased postural sway is a strong indicator of poor balance and a leading cause of falls. 

If a balance problem is identified, balance training may reduce the person’s fall risk.
