Balance Assessment Dataset

The dataset contains information on the balance abilities of elderly people, collected during a measurement campaign on 21 volunteer subjects. Ground-truth target information for each subject is expressed in terms of the score achieved (as measured by a clinician) on the Berg Balance Scale (BBS), a gold standard clinical test for measuring balance abilities. Input information consists in the stream of data from the pressure sensors at the four corners of a Wii Balance Board, gathered during the execution by the subjects of a single exercise of the BBS test.
The dataset contains input data pertaining to three BBS exercises, namely #6, #7 and #10.
