Abstract

Even though several diagnostic and therapeutic instruments and methodologies have never had a proper scientific validation, they are recognised as valid tools and regularly used in clinics. Our aim is to validate instrumental posturography as for instruments and methodologies which are widely used in motor rehabilitation. A model was proposed in 1983 by Kapteyn et al. to standardise their use, but no adequate models have been implemented up to now. Specifically, the main objectives of this study were: (1) characterisation of the instrumentation, namely force and/or pressure platforms, as for the minimal requirements of precision, accuracy, and acquisition parameters; (2) definition of measurement protocols, standardised with respect to environmental conditions, patient’s positioning, and so on; (3) definition of standardised signal acquisition and pre-processing procedures; (4) definition of a set of clinically meaningful parameters computed according to standardised procedures.
