Abstract: Assesses the use of the Wii Balance Board (WBB) or the Xbox Kinect as diagnostic or functional assessment tools in orthopedics. Finds 11 studies of varying quality, reporting a wide range of sensitivities, specificities and validities, in the use of these devices for measurement of center of pressure (COP), medial-lateral or anterior-posterior symmetry, and assessment of anatomic landmark positioning and of fall risk. Concludes that only for COP determination, while the Wii Fit game may be promising for fall risk assessment.
