Instability, fear of falling and fall injuries are common problems for the older population and individuals with chronic disabilities. Development of screening tools and outcome measures of balance performance and fall risk has become of great interest for health professionals and researchers in the field of rehabilitation. Although linear modeling is desirable due to its simplicity, however, most physiological systems are too complicated to lend themselves to linear analysis because the human… CONTINUE READING
