Portable, Wireless Motion Sensors in use

No current system exists that identifies and characterizes movement performance unobtrusively during spontaneous, daily activity. The Balance Disorders Laboratory is developing a unique system to measure mobility (gait and dynamic balance) using wearable sensors throughout the day. Our OHSU/PSU start-up company, APDM, is developing systems to allow clinicians and clinical researchers to monitor mobility and clinical motor symptoms using their core technology, 'Opal' movement monitors.
