Balance Tracking Systems is a Corporation founded in 2013 by Dr Daniel Goble (bio below) and Mr Andrew May. The company is based in San Diego, CA and began with the simple mission to improve the quality of balance testing being utilized for the management of sports-related concussions. Over time this mission has expanded to include the development of gold standard testing solutions for many balance applications including assessing the efficacy of balance training solutions, rehabilitation and fall risk screening. In addition, BTrackS can be implemented for assessing and tracking changes in global postural alignment. Posture, is an increasingly utilized indicator of health and well being being used by clinicians and health/wellness professionals.
Dr Daniel Goble has a Master’s degree in Biomechanics from The University of Windsor in Ontairio, Canada and a PhD in Motor Control from The University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Following his PhD, Dr. Goble also completed three years of post-doctoral research in sensorimotor neuroscience at the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven in Leuven, Belgium. Currently, he serves as a faculty member in the College of Health and Human Services, School of Exercise and Nutritional Sciences, at San Diego State University. In this post he teaches Clinical Biomechanics classes for the Applied Movement Science Master’s program and directs the Sensory-Motor and Rehabilitative Technology laboratory (SMaRTlab), where BTrackS was created.
Dr. Goble’s work on proprioception (our sense of body position in space) and balance control has resulted in multiple nationally and internationally funded fellowships, grants and awards. In addition, he has published more than 30 peer-reviewed articles, co-authored a book chapter and his work has been featured multiple times in the media. Now the founder of Balance Tracking Systems, he is the visionary of BTrackS and has helped drive its mission towards providing affordable, objective and accurate balance testing in both sport and rehabilitation domains.
