Ankle sprain is the most occurring sport related injury. In addition, 40% of the people who sustain such an injury display residual symptoms under the general denominator functional ankle instability (FAI). In literature, there is already given a lot of attention to extrinsic and intrinsic risk factors of FAI. Furthermore, there is a major focus on the possible interventions which may be able to reduce the chance of developing chronic instability. At this moment there is a lack of unequivocality.
In this study the investigators address the question of what is the effect of a balance training programme on the movement strategy. Therefore kinematics, kinetics, plantar pressure measurements and muscle activity are taken in consideration The purpose of this study is a better insight in the effect of treatment on the residual symptoms related to FAI.

The aim of this study is to determine the effect of a balance training intervention on the change in hyper-reactivity to unloading reaction, ankle joint laxity, ankle joint proprioception ...
The goal of this study is evaluate the effect of uni-axial versus multidirectional balance training on muscle reaction time in subjects with chronic ankle instability. Muscle reaction time...
Aging results in a gradual decline of physical abilities and consequently in functional impairments which increases the risk of falls in elderly people. It has been shown, that balance and...
Many survivors of acquired brain injury (ABI) suffer from decreased balance and increased risks of falls. Previous studies indicate that balance training improves balance, reduces falls, a...
After an initial ankle sprain, Chronic Ankle Instability is one of the most common residual symptoms which include pain, swelling, recurrent sprain, episodes of ankle joint "giving away" o...
Visual, vestibular, and somatosensory systems contribute to postural control. Chronic ankle instability (CAI) patients have been observed to have a reduced ability to dynamically shift their reliance ...
Virtual Reality (VR) balance training may have advantages over regular exercise training in older adults. However, results so far are conflicting potentially due to the lack of challenge imposed by th...
Strategies to address gait and balance deficits early poststroke are minimal. The postural and motor control requirements of Backward Walking Training (BWT) may provide benefits to improve balance and...
Standing on unstable surfaces requires more complex motor control mechanisms to sustain balance when compared to firm surfaces. Surface instability enhances the demand to maintain equilibrium and is o...
The purpose of this study was to determine whether balance and mobility training (BMT) or balance and mobility plus cognitive training (BMT + C) would improve obstacle clearance and reaction time ...
Financial support for training including both student stipends and loans and training grants to institutions.
Component of the NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTH. It conducts and supports biomedical research and research training on normal mechanisms as well as diseases and disorders of hearing, balance, smell, taste, voice, speech, and language. It was established in 1988.
On the job training programs for personnel carried out within an institution or agency. It includes orientation programs.
Homeostatic control of the immune system by secretion of different cytokines by the Th1 and Th2 cells. The concentration dependent binding of the various cytokines to specific receptors determines the balance (or imbalance leading to disease).
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.
