With help of the Balance Disorders Laboratory, APDM Wearable Technologies has developed a novel portable laboratory system called "Mobility Lab" to allow clinicians to measure balance and gait in any environment.
OHSU works together with APDM to initiate ground-breaking gait and balance research using Mobility Lab. The system provides sensitive, valid, and reliable outcome measures. Using APDM’s advanced wearable sensors (Opals), Mobility Lab makes it easy to collect, analyze, and store data. Opals are attached to a subject, and they are instructed to perform a standardized test. A report is then automatically generated to compare against normative values. This process takes less than five minutes.
