This pilot project funded by NC State-UNC Rehabilitation Engineering Center is focused on testing the use of smartphone technology in place of laboratory grade accelerometry to measure movement in a military tactical maneuver. The POWAR-TOTAL assessment is derived from two high level mobility tasks that were part of a return-to-duty test battery, the Assessment of Military Multitasking Performance (AMMP). This goal of this project is to create a test procedure that uses the most sensitive aspects of two AMMP tasks measured with smart phone technology in preparation for testing of the POWAR-TOTAL in a military population.
