Table 4 Features of Balance Analyses

From: Assessment of frailty: a survey of quantitative and clinical methods

  Studies/parameters used to assess balance Device Clinical Test Frailty Classification Purpose
1 A. Chkeir et al. [10, 34] Rise Rate, Average Velocity of Trajectory Obtained From Reaction Force and CoP Trajectories Balance Quality Testers (Bathroom Scales) None Frail and Non-Frail Established the Relationship Among the Balance Parameter with the Fried Phenotype
2 Chang et al. [21] Balance ePad and eReach None Pre-frail and Non-frail Developed Frailty Model Using Artificial Neural Network.
3 A. Martinez-Ramirez et al. [69] Sway Area, Signal Patterns Tri-Axial Inertial Sensor Unit Quiet Standing Balance Test Yes Pre-Classified According to the Fried phenotype High Frequency Components Associated With Frailty Syndrome
4 G.M. Bertolotti et al. [35] Body Sway and Trunk Kinematics Data Customized Inertial Sensor Unit (Gyro, and, Accelerometer) Selected Tasks Performed from Tinetti Tests, Balance Evaluation Systems Test and Berg Balance None Validating the Use of Newly Developed Unit Against Balance Board and Marker-Based System.
5 Z. Lv et al. [40] CoM Kinect Double Leg Stance, sttar excursion balance Test None Validating Kinect V2 for Balance Measurement
6 A. Nalci et al. [79] Variation in pixel events Camera UPST None Developed Vision Based Model To Assess Balance
