Evaluation of motion platform embedded with force plate-instrumented treadmill

Emily H. Sinitski, BSc, et al.

The Computer Aided Rehabilitation Environment (CAREN) virtual environment allows a person to safely walk on level and changing terrain within a three-dimensional computer-generated world. Veterans can benefit from the CAREN system during rehabilitation and from related research. These systems can measure how a person moves and the forces that cause these movements, providing useful information for physical rehabilitation. This article investigates CAREN-Extended system performance and introduces a set of tests for this emerging field that can be used by researchers and healthcare providers. Rehabilitation virtual reality equipment can vary between sites, so these tests can be completed to understand specific system performance at individual sites.
