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...
Cerebral damage provoked by stroke may lead to deficits of quiet balance control and of the recovery of body equilibrium following an unanticipated postural perturbation. In this investigation we aime...
Degenerative lumbar diseases (DLDs) are characterized by motor functional deficits and postural instability. In this study, we investigated the differences in the trunk muscle responses to postural co...
To investigate if attention to additional sensory information from the fingertip can improve postural stability during pain, which is known to impair balance.
The purpose of this investigation was to evaluate the effect of the removal of vision and/or surface compliance on postural stability in strength athletes who habitually use free-weights and compound ...
Postural stability and balance are defined as the body's ability to return the body back to its equilibrium point when exposed to a perturbation. This exploratory project is based on the h...
Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a clinical condition characterized by the repetitive obstruction of the upper airway during sleep, resulting in nocturnal hypoxaemia and fragmented sleep. ...
Persons with HIV can present vestibular system impairments, affecting postural stability. There is scarce literature related to the contribution of the visual and somatosensory systems in ...
Poor balance capacity is one of clinical symptoms of stroke patient. The reason of loss balance capacity is motor impairment, as well as a diminished capacity to voluntarily shift body wei...
It is extensively reported in the literature that patients with chronic obstructive lung disease may have impairments in balance and postural control which further increase the disease bur...
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.
