  • responses
  • An everyday situation is to react to unexpected balance disturbances to avoid falls by using different postural responses. (diva-portal.org)
  • Since young people with ID seem to fall more often than peers without ID, it is valuable to investigate if those postural responses are different between the groups. (diva-portal.org)
  • Therefore, young people with and without ID (n=99) were exposed to six backward surface translations and several postural muscle responses were evaluated: muscle synergies and strategies, muscle onset latency, time-to-peak amplitude, and adaptation. (diva-portal.org)
  • Our results suggest that the nervous system prioritizes the maintenance of a stable postural base during reaching, and that later components of the postural responses can be modulated to ensure the performance of the voluntary task. (edu.au)
  • movements
  • On the other hand, in case of perturbed balance reaching arm movements with the aim to grasp for a nearby object is a widely utilized change-in-support strategy ( Maki and McIlroy, 2006 ). (frontiersin.org)
  • METHODS
  • METHODS: the standardised mean difference (SMD) of continuous end points of balance confidence was calculated to estimate the pooled effect size with random-effect models. (biomedsearch.com)
  • CONCLUSIONS
  • CONCLUSIONS: These results indicate that Feldenkrais exercises are an effective way to improve balance and mobility, and thus offer an alternative method to help offset age-related declines in mobility and reduce the risk of falling among community-dwelling older adults. (biomedsearch.com)
  • programme
  • All included studies must have assessed the impact of virtual reality programme on either static or dynamic balance ability and compared it with a control group. (hindawi.com)
  • This review provided moderate evidence to support the fact that virtual reality training is an effective adjunct to standard rehabilitation programme to improve balance for patients with chronic stroke. (hindawi.com)
  • improves
  • In Part 2 of the study, we hope to determine how training on either the Lokomat or Ekso improves your seated balance and other similar functional abilities. (icord.org)
  • Therefore
  • Therefore, five balance tests and three muscle strength tests were used to compare young people with ID with an age-matched control group without ID (n=255). (diva-portal.org)
  • We therefore hypothesised, that cleaners with neck pain suffer from postural dysfunction. (biomedcentral.com)
  • Therefore, this study tested if cleaners with neck pain are also characterised by postural impairments. (biomedcentral.com)
  • Therefore, clinicians need to use evaluative tools that assess postural changes during physiotherapy. (ac.ir)
  • kyphosis
  • The specific objective is to determine the relationship between the degree of thoracic kyphosis and dosing of 25 OH vitamin D with postural balance in postmenopausal women with lumbar osteoporosis. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • knee
  • The main goal of physiotherapy for patients with anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACL-R) is to improve postural control and retain knee function. (ac.ir)
  • The gravity line passes slightly anterior to the S2 segment, behind the axis of the hip joint, slightly anterior to the transverse axis of rotation of the knee (slightly posterior to the patella), crosses anterior to the lateral malleolus, and through the cuboid-calcaneal junction to fall between the heel and metatarsal heads when viewed laterally during good postural balance. (chiro.org)
  • alignment
  • The main aim of this study was to identify the short-term effects of Kinesio taping (KT) on the static body alignment and overall balance function presented by the coordinate and foot balance in stroke patients. (tapingbase.com)
  • functional
  • Studies have shown that women have worse postural balance and greater functional dependence than men, but there is no consensus regarding this. (scielo.br)
  • We hope that the results from this study may go on to inform therapists and other rehabilitation professionals about how best to train seated balance and other functional abilities. (icord.org)
  • assess
  • To critically evaluate the studies that were conducted over the past 10 years and to assess the impact of virtual reality on static and dynamic balance control in the stroke population. (hindawi.com)
  • frequency
  • Data were collected, stored, and processed by the Balance Clinic® program, configured to 100 Hz frequency, with a frequency cut-off filter at 10 Hz. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Initial
  • Boocock MG et al (2006) Initial force and postural adaptations when pushing and pulling on floor surfaces with good and reduced resistance to slipping. (springer.com)
  • however
  • However, participants of the FG group showed improvements in balance confidence (p = 0.054) and mobility while performing concurrently a cognitive task (p = 0.067). (biomedsearch.com)
