Lack of balance and postural control has the greatest impact on patients" mobilization and independent performance during the activities of daily living. Although an individual"s "static" balance is acceptable while standing still or performing a single task at a time; "dynamic" balance problems may become apparent during mobilization or while doing multiple tasks at a time. Therefore, being aware of the real-time dynamic balance of the patient is critical for both the patient and the physical therapist. This investigation developed a tactile and visual biological feedback mechanism intended to be used during the orthopedic and neuromuscular disease rehabilitation.
