EQUIMETRIX is a portable device for the evaluation and treatment of functional balance. It calculates the stability index based on the centre of mass and system equilibrium, integrating the platform and has non-nomadic, semi-nomadic and nomadic versions.
Clinical assessment scales have been developed and are currently used daily by physicians. The assessment criteria are very clinically relevant, but to a large extent subjective and, therefore, depend on professional experience and conditions. There is a clinical need for quantitative assessment tools.
Furthermore, scientific evidence supports the paradigm that a joint analysis of CoM-CoP CoM-Foot placement reflects human functional stability. Even if enabling technologies are available to measure functional stability quantitatively, it is necessary to have an integrated technology that can be widely implemented among physicians and/or “balance” professionals.
