Ava Segal, recent PhD graduate from the Colorado School of Mines (with Prof. Adamczyk collaborating), has published two papers on a new approach to balance training, which couples a traditional wobble board with a embedded sensing to drive a little robot car through mazes.
The first describes the exercise itself, including a test of its effects on both young and older adults.

Silverman, “Balance Therapy With Hands-Free Mobile Robotic Feedback for At-Home Training Across the Lifespan,” IEEE Transactions on Neural Systems and Rehabilitation Engineering, vol. 30, pp. 2671–2681, 2022, doi: 10.1109/TNSRE.2022.3205850.

The second compares the level of challenge and engagement when using the robotic system vs. a standard-of-care video game exercise.
