Computerized Dynamic Posturography System
Hardware Type
Computer Systems

Computerized dynamic posturography (CDP) is an established test of postural stability. During CDP testing, the subject stands on a movable, dual forceplate support surface within a moveable surround (enclosure). Under control of a computer, the force platform can either move in a horizontal plane (translate), or rotate out of the horizontal plane. Standardized test protocols expose the patient to support surface and visual surround motions, during which the patient's postural stability and motor reactions are recorded.
