Summary of "Feet deformities are correlated with impaired balance and postural stability in seniors over 75."

Understanding the factors and mechanisms that determine balance in seniors appears vital in terms of their self-reliance and overall safety. The study aimed to determine the relationship between the features of feet structure and the indicators of postural stability in the elderly.

Normative Data for the Sway Balance System.

Static balance, postural stability, and reaction time are commonly impaired after a sport-related concussion. The Sway Balance System assesses postural sway (ie, stability) and simple reaction time us...

Modeling margin of stability with feet in place following a postural perturbation: Effect of altered anthropometric models for estimated extrapolated centre of mass.

Maintaining the centre of mass (CoM) of the body within the base of support is a critical component of upright balance; the ability to accurately quantify balance recovery mechanisms is critical for m...

Correlations between core muscle geometry, pain intensity, functional disability and postural balance in patients with nonspecific mechanical low back pain.

Patients with low back pain (LBP) have reduced core muscle geometry and impaired postural balance. Impaired trunk control was shown to be associated with poor balance and limited functional mobility i...

Is Kinect Training Superior to Conventional Balance Training for Healthy Older Adults to Improve Postural Control?

To investigate the effects of balance training to improve postural control in adults older than 60. Our aim was to find out if Kinect training is superior to the conventional balance training in aspec...

Smartphone technology can measure postural stability and discriminate fall risk in older adults.

Falls are the leading cause of injury related death in older adults. Impaired postural stability is a predictor of falls but is seldom objectively assessed in clinical or home settings. Embedded accel...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A POSTURE in which an ideal body mass distribution is achieved. Postural balance provides the body carriage stability and conditions for normal functions in stationary position or in movement, such as sitting, standing, or walking.

Sensory functions that transduce stimuli received by proprioceptive receptors in joints, tendons, muscles, and the INNER EAR into neural impulses to be transmitted to the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM. Proprioception provides sense of stationary positions and movements of one's body parts, and is important in maintaining KINESTHESIA and POSTURAL BALANCE.

Congenital structural deformities of the upper and lower extremities collectively or unspecified.

Deformities acquired after birth as the result of injury or disease. The joint deformity is often associated with rheumatoid arthritis and leprosy.

Sequences within RNA that regulate the processing, stability (RNA STABILITY) or translation (TRANSLATION, GENETIC) of RNA.
