Computerised static posturography in neurology

Posturography is a general term for techniques used to measure postural stability on static or dynamic measuring platforms. The principle of static computerised posturography (SCPG) is the detection of the centre of foot pressure (CFP) in upright stance on a posturography platform. Our communication deals with the importance of SCPG in differential topodiagnosis of vestibular syndromes in neurology. The set of examinations and evaluations carried out was divided among a control group of healthy subjects (77), a group of subjects with peripheral vestibular disorder (159), and a group of subjects with a non-peripheral balance disorder (82). Results obtained through the measurements were evaluated using descriptive statistics procedures and basic numerical and graphic statistical characteristics of the given groups. Our observations demonstrate that posturography is a valuable auxiliary test for balance disorders, especially given the lack of more suitable tests. According to our results, SCPG can be used for a rough differential topodiagnosis of balance disorders in neurology.
