A Study of the Effects of External Stimulations on Postural Stability

2019-10-31 14:29:38 | BioPortfolio


In view of the long-term exercise, you can maintain your health and strengthen your physical strength. It can also improve your body's balance and help maintain your body's coordination so that you can reduce the chance of falls.

Therefore, in the face of aging, stroke rehabilitation or balance of power caused by balance of power decline, sports injuries or falls related issues, this study will focus on "balance ability" to explore a range of impacts and relationships.


Considering the standardization comparison in the study, this study will collect data on the balance of young people under different external stimuli, and hope to understand the balance control ability by objectively collecting the physiological signals of the Center of Pressure (COP).

The change, and the use of the Berg scale as a benchmark for the assessment of balance ability, and then return to the issue of balance ability training.

Therefore, this study divides the experiment into two major stages. The first stage will focus on healthy young people, and explore how external stimuli affect balance, and then assist balance ability training to find the most appropriate adjustment of body posture control.

The second phase explores the appropriate exercise training for stroke patients, such as the use of Modular Interactive Tiles System (MITS) training, to track the effectiveness of external stimulus impact balance training.

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.

Organic chemistry methodology that mimics the modular nature of various biosynthetic processes. It uses highly reliable and selective reactions designed to "click" i.e., rapidly join small modular units together in high yield, without offensive byproducts. In combination with COMBINATORIAL CHEMISTRY TECHNIQUES, it is used for the synthesis of new compounds and combinatorial libraries.

Mechanical ventilation delivered to match the patient's efforts in breathing as detected by the interactive ventilation device.

A comprehensive map of the physical interconnections of an organism's neural networks. This modular organization of neuronal architecture is believed to underlie disease mechanisms and the biological development of the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM.

Use of an interactive computer system designed to assist the physician or other health professional in choosing between certain relationships or variables for the purpose of making a diagnostic or therapeutic decision.
