Recently, digital games controlled by real-time body movements (exergames) have been proposed as an innovative method to improve balance among older adults. One of the main challenges for exergames is to automatically quantify balance during game-play to adapt the game difficulty according to the skills of the player. We employ multidimensional data analysis, using visualization of force plate and Kinect data, to establish suitable measures for quantifying balance in real-time.
