CU BrainBLoX

We have developed a user friendly interface for viewing and recording center of pressure (CoP) data in real-time from a Wii Balance Board. It is a standalone executable that will work on Windows XP and later (We have tested up until Windows 10). All you need is a Nintendo Wii Balance Board, a Windows PC running Windows XP or later, and our CU BrainBLoX software.

We also have an older software that runs in MATLAB (but is rather outdated). It uses the WiiLab patch that includes balance board support. Read more about the Wii Project. System requirements: Windows XP & MATLAB R2007a
