Abstract : The purpose of this research has been to develop a mobile motion capture system that is capable of quantifying a persons sense of balance, which can in turn be used as a proxy for assessing concussion or musculoskeletal injury. During this research period, we have developed (1) a baseline system based on the Microsoft Kinect motion tracker, (2) a graphical user interface, and (3) algorithms of automated balance scoring. Furthermore, we have begun the process of testing with human volunteers and used our preliminary data to quantify system calibration and limitations of performance. We have also compared our systems performance against that of human experts and determined that our system is in general more reliable.
