In order to carry out daily life activities, independence of individuals should be insured. For this independence, it is necessary to have adequate balance and coordination. Without adequate balance and coordination, it is not possible to walk neither even to stand. Movement is the basic living unit of an organism. Balance and coordination are of great importance for smooth, fluid and convenient action. In the clinical settings individuals are given exercises in different ways to increase their balance and coordination to protect them from injuries and to gain their independence. Nowadays, in order to adapt to the future, technological devices that can analyze and improve balance and coordination are being developed. The adequacy of the devices or systems developed for this purpose is also discussed. Most of the systems available on market only provide balance training by moving the floor, while others aim to contribute to balance by stimulating joint proprioception with a vibrating ground. This project aims to develop equipments that will provide balance and coordination trainings to guide the user through visual, auditory and mechanical feedback, develop a software which will record, analyze and evaluate the trainings given while ensuring that this equipment works systematically, carry out clinical studies to investigate the effectiveness of this developed system in healthy people.
