This paradigm examines the coupling between human balance and an external dynamical system. This coupled system, with time delays and nonlinearities, is ideal to study the emergence of complex postural behavior and unanticipated interactions between the individual, task, and the external dynamical system. We expect that the active balance board will improve diagnoses and rehabilitation for people with compromised balance.
