A WBB-based posturography system included three standardized assessment protocols: the modified Clinical Test of Sensory Interaction on Balance (mCTSIB), the Limits of Stability (LOS), and the Rhythmic Weight Shift (RWS) (see Supplementary Material for additional details). The mCTSIB is a simplified version of the Sensory Organization Test that can be carried out using fixed force plates. The test can detect the presence of sensory impairments by analyzing COP motion during quiet stance under four different conditions: eyes opened and closed on a flat surface, and eyes opened and closed on foam. Outcome measures of this test are the speed and the maximum excursion of the COP in the medial-lateral and anterior–posterior axis. The LOS test quantifies maximum displacement of the COP in eight directions while the plantar surface of the feet remains in contact with the platform. Directional control is assessed as a ratio between the extent of movement in the intended direction and the total amount of movement. The outcome measures of this test are the maximum distance and directional control in each direction. Finally, the RWS assesses the ability to rhythmically move the COP in the medial-lateral (ML) and anterior–posterior (AP) planes at three different speeds. The outcome measure of this test was the directional control in both planes at the different speeds.
