The DynSTABLE is an innovative therapy and rehabilitation tool that uses a moving platform and an immersive environment to help neurological patients recover their dynamic stability and balance control.
DynSTABLE (Dynamic STability And Balance Learning Environment) is an advanced training tool developed for clinical settings that helps clinicians train and assess balance control. Developed by Motekforce Link, the solution provides a detailed insight into impaired balance control and uses an immersive virtual environment with a moving platform to help patients train movement functions and improve stability. The platform was designed to help with the rehabilitation of patients with vestibular or musculoskeletal disorders, those recovering after a stroke or traumatic brain injury (TBI) and patients with Parkinson's disease. Seniors can also benefit from DynSTABLE therapy, as it helps them improve balance and reduce the risk of falls.
The DynSTABLE combines virtual reality environments with a force plate and motion capture technology to offer real-time integration and patient engagement. The moving platform challenges patients' dynamic stability, as well as cognitive and sensory systems, while the technology tracks and analyzes their balance control under complex conditions. The platform helps clinicians assess different aspects of impaired balance control, including patients' ability to cope with the perturbations, perform cognitive dual tasks and process visual and auditory information.
The platform allows clinicians to get objective data, set the baseline for therapy, and monitor patients' progress. Therapists can create training applications for individual patients and then measure and train their dynamic and static balance control using a rich virtual environment with real-time feedback and immersive interactions, designed to keep the patients motivated. The DynSTABLE offers fun VR exercises that are based on scientifically proven protocols. The software that comes with the platform makes it easy for therapists to accurately track and manage patients' rehabilitation programs and create reports. It offers instant feedback on patients' physical, visual and cognitive performance.
The virtual environment available with the DynSTABLE is displayed on three screens using projectors and enhanced with an audio system. The moving platform allows fast accelerations and lets patients move in every direction. The motion capture system consists of four cameras that collect 3D motion data for instant analysis.
