Static balance performance is a common metric for evaluating the development of postural control in children. Less is known about the potentially independent development of dynamic balance performance.

Studies have shown that dual-task standing balance in Parkinson's disease (PD) is significantly diminished. Additionally, it is well accepted that dopaminergic medication improves dynamic balance (Ber...
Standing on textured materials can improve static balance, potentially by modulating somatosensory inputs from the soles of the feet.
Potential alternatives for conventional sitting and standing postures are hybrid sit-stand postures (i.e., perching). The purposes of this study were i) to identify where lumbopelvic and pelvic angles...
Although poor standing posture is a known cause of low back pain, the mechanisms involved are unclear. The aim of this study was to clarify the kinetic and posture angle features of standing posture t...
Various interventions, such as standing intermittently with one leg on a footrest, have been suggested to prevent low back pain (LBP) development during prolonged standing. To assess this standing int...
Upright-working has been proven to benefit health by combating the negative effects of physical inactivity. However, long-term commitment to static standing regimens may be limited due to ...
Total hip replacement (THR) is the procedure which can improve the quality of life in patients with osteoarthritis. However, deficits in static stability and impairment of the lower limb e...
This is a cross-sectional and prospective cohort study using a biopsychosocial approach to investigate office workers at risk of standing-induced musculoskeletal pain. The purpose of this ...
Studies have shown the existence of a proprioceptive deficit in patients with Ehlers Danlos Syndrome (EDS) (genetic pathology of connective tissue with hypermobility, plurifactor joint ins...
The main objective of this study is to evaluate via a physiological analysis of the movements involved in standing, the level of forward flexion of the spine (in cm on the horizontal axis)...
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.
A significant drop in BLOOD PRESSURE after assuming a standing position. Orthostatic hypotension is a finding, and defined as a 20-mm Hg decrease in systolic pressure or a 10-mm Hg decrease in diastolic pressure 3 minutes after the person has risen from supine to standing. Symptoms generally include DIZZINESS, blurred vision, and SYNCOPE.
Medical procedures and prescriptions regarding treatment of a patient that can be exercised by other health care personnel when predetermined conditions have been met.
Descriptive anatomy based on three-dimensional imaging (IMAGING, THREE-DIMENSIONAL) of the body, organs, and structures using a series of computer multiplane sections, displayed by transverse, coronal, and sagittal analyses. It is essential to accurate interpretation by the radiologist of such techniques as ultrasonic diagnosis, MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING, and computed tomography (TOMOGRAPHY, X-RAY COMPUTED).

Educational programs designed to inform individuals of recent advances in their particular field of interest. They do not lead to any formal advanced standing.
Pediatrics is the general medicine of childhood. Because of the developmental processes (psychological and physical) of childhood, the involvement of parents, and the social management of conditions at home and at school, pediatrics is a specialty. With ...
