Use of the BrainPort® Balance Device to Improve Balance in Adults With Balance Deficits Due to Stroke

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of the BrainPort balance device in improving balance in people with balance deficits due to stroke.

Fall Prevention in Older Adults Study

Poor balance is one of the major risk factors for falling in older adults. A Matter of Balance (MOB) is one of the most commonly used fall prevention programs nationally. Despite its name,...

A Multidimensional Inpatient Balance Training Class to Improve Functional Outcomes in Rehabilitation Inpatients With ABI

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...

Benchmarking the iOS Balance Application Against the Berg Balance Test

This study aims to benchmark the performance of an iOS application against the Berg Balance Scale (BBS), which is the most commonly used assessment tool by clinicians for measuring balance...

Effect of Exercise on Gait and Balance in Peripheral Neuropathy

The purpose of this study is to find out if participation in one of the study groups: functional balance training, Tai Chi, or education, results in better outcomes overall. The outcomes ...

The evolution of cooperation in signed networks under the impact of structural balance.

Structural balance plays an important role in the dynamics of signed networks. Based on structural balance, we generalize the evolution of cooperation in signed networks. Here we develop a new simulat...

Effects of 8-Week Complex Balance Training in Young Alpine Skiers: A Pilot Study.

The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of an 8-week complex balance training program on dynamic balance in skiers according to the new balance training protocol.

Validation of the Wii Balance Board to assess balance modifications induced by increased respiratory loads in healthy subjects.

There is a link between breathing and balance and posture. When the inspiratory loads are increased by pathologies, there is a decrease of postural control. The increase of the inspiratory load on res...

An Examination of Relationships Among Resiliency, Hardiness, Affectivity, and Work-Life Balance in Collegiate Athletic Trainers.

A multilevel model has been used to describe the complex nature of work-life balance in sport organizations. Organizational aspects such as work scheduling, hours worked, job demands, and decreased pe...

Spectral analysis of centre of pressure identifies altered balance control in individuals with moderate-severe traumatic brain injury.

To identify impairments and recovery of balance control after moderate-severe traumatic brain injury (TBI) through spectral analyses of static balance tasks and to characterise the contributions of ea...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

The balance between acids and bases in the BODY FLUIDS. The pH (HYDROGEN-ION CONCENTRATION) of the arterial BLOOD provides an index for the total body acid-base balance.

The balance of fluid in the BODY FLUID COMPARTMENTS; total BODY WATER; BLOOD VOLUME; EXTRACELLULAR SPACE; INTRACELLULAR SPACE, etc., maintained by processes in the body that regulate the intake and excretion of WATER and ELECTROLYTES, particularly SODIUM and POTASSIUM.

Membranous appendage of fish and other aquatic organisms used for locomotion or balance.
