Static and perturbed posturography
 
Description
Static and (voluntarily) perturbed posturography have been applied to the analysis of equilibrium maintenance.
Non linear approaches have been use to derive posturographic parameters that have been found useful in the evaluation of parkinsonian subjecta at the early stage of the disease.
Model based approaches have been applied to postorographic data relative to diabetic patients and suitable classification techniques have succeeded in distinguishing at an early stage the presence of peripheral neuropathy.
