The aim of this study was to examine the effectiveness of visual biofeedback (VBF) signals from a force platform and accelerometer sensors placed on different body segments. The study was performed on 20 young subjects during standing on a firm and foam support surface with a VBF signal sensed from CoP, lower trunk (L5) and upper trunk (Th4). The VBF signal(More)
The aim of the study was to investigate age-related changes in postural responses to platform translation with 3 various velocities. We focused on the influence of linear velocity using the smoothed profile of platform acceleration (till 100 cm.s(-2)). Eleven healthy young (20-31 years) and eleven healthy elderly (65-76 years) subjects were examined. The(More)
Real-time visual biofeedback (VBF) is a voluntary control mechanism of postural activity using additional visual information of the centre of pressure (CoP) position. The aim of the study was to examine balance control performance in subjects of different age during the stance on different support surfaces with and without VBF. The study was performed on 20(More)
OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this study was to determine the effectiveness of visual (VF) and vibrotactile (TF) biofeedback obtained from the lower trunk (L5) tilts signal and their combination (VF+TF) in reducing postural sway in young and elderly people. METHODS: Twenty healthy elderly subjects (8 males, mean age 74 years) and 20 healthy young subjects (7(More)
