Stabilometry is a fi eld that comprises a series of studies, from which the specialist can study the location and
trajectory of the center of gravity of a patient in standing position. It is a widely used technique among health industry professionals.
It is also used to diagnose musculoskeletal system diseases and to establish personalized training and rehabilitation sessions for
each patient. This project, presents the design of a stabilometric platform with four sensors and a metal structure in SAE 1010 steel,
designed to withstand large deformations and efforts. The acquisition and conditioning of the signals begins with an amplifi cation
and fi ltering stage. Then, using a data acquisition device, the data is uploaded to a graphic interface in LabView in order to calculate
important variables and factors, such as the Romberg’s coeffi cient. Satisfactory results were obtained both in the design, modeling
and construction of the device, as well as in the performed stabilometry tests.
