Date of Original Version



A three-dimensional accelerometer was incorporated into a balance board to report real-time ankle attitudes during ankle sprain rehabilitative treatment. The design consisted of an embedded sensory module wirelessly linked to an Android mobile device with a graphic user interface to assess proprioceptive improvements. Preliminary results demonstrated an ability to report ankle attitude at a rate of 6 Hz, thereby providing a useful real-time feedback during the rehabilitation.
