Does the HUMAC Balance Board require batteries?

No. The original batteries would last on 10 to 13 hours. In the clinic the HUMAC Balance Board is used all day so battery power was not a viable solution. For this reason we replaced the batteries with a USB Cable which allows the PC to power the sensors and read their output.
