The purpose of this study was to compare functional reach distance and right single leg stance time in patients who had peripheral vestibular disease. Twenty-eight patients (15 female, 13 male) between the ages of 35 and 84 were asked to perform 3 trials each of functional reach (FR) and right single leg stance (SLS). SLS times were measured by a Kistler(More)
This study compared voluntary movement strategies of patients with unilateral peripheral vestibular hypofunction with those of age-matched healthy control subjects. All subjects performed three voluntary movement tasks with their dominant upper extremity: a forward flexion arm movement through 90 degrees, a reach to an overhead target, and a reach to a side(More)
The effects of the Air-Stirrup (AS) standard ankle brace on the gait of 19 subjects with hemiplegia resulting from a cerebrovascular accident who exhibited excessive subtalar joint motion were studied. Videotaped trials and footprint analyses were used to measure subjects' hip, knee, and ankle sagittal plane angles; inversion and eversion of the calcaneus;(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE People with peripheral vestibular pathology demonstrate motor impairments when responding and adapting to postural platform perturbations and during performance of sit-to-stand and locomotor tasks. This study investigated the influence of unilateral peripheral vestibular hypofunction on voluntary arm movement. SUBJECTS AND METHODS(More)
