Summary of "Reliability of measures of dynamic stability for the assessment of balance recovery after a forward loss of balance."

Falls are common and serious events, which mostly occur during locomotion, that are associated with deficient dynamic balance. An experimental approach that simulates falling forward has become increasing popular to investigate dynamic balance. However, research has not been conducted to examine the test-retest reliability of this experimental approach.
