I know WiiFit has this all built in but I'd like to build a few custom apps specific for chiropractor studies.

Yes, I have done searches but still can't track down WiiFit libs examples etc. I keep getting pointed at the wiki but again it's buried in there somewhere...

Any kind soul that wish to point me in the right direction would be very much appreciated.

The WiiFit is just a 4 point scale (one on each corner). The software is inside the Wii has the algorithms for calculating the Posture/Balance.

Thank you for the reply.

Obtaining the pressure data via bluetooth is a no go?

Yes wiiremotej is your answer, but you will need to work out the calculations it will just give you raw data. My understanding of your question was you wanted the whole lot not just the data from the device.

Thank you for the replies.

I was thinking putting a more "professional" look to apps for the wiifit. Possible posture/balance apps for chiropractors with database hooks could be useful.

Possible patient tracking of posture/balance & weight would be handy. The WiiFit software does a great job but doesn't have a serious enough look for a doctor's office.

Yup, basically just duplicate the wiifit software but add database integration.

I fully agree. Also the limit of only eight profiles would not be ideal for a professional setting.

Brian Peek has created a .NET library for Windows for many of the Wii devices, including the Wii Fit. You can use the free Microsoft Visual Basic 2008 Express Edition to do the development of your software using his library.

http://www.brianpeek.com/blog/pages/wiimotelib.aspx

For the Wii Fit, his library exposes the individual values of each of the 4 weight sensors and also a Center-of-Gravity calculated value. You can also retrieve the current Battery level. I think you can also get the Calibration Info also. Most of his library is aimed at the Wiimote.

I've successfully connected to the Wii Fit and collected live data with his dll library. For me, the hardest part was getting a Bluetooth connection to the Wii Fit. Connecting to the Wiimote via Bluetooth was simple and consistent. I found the Wii Fit is much more difficult to get it to be Recognized and Connected with the HID service enabled.

For my Rocketfish USB Bluetooth adapter, there appears to be some issues. I'm looking for a better adapter or stack.
