The purpose of the present experiment was to investigate the effect of vision on postural control following a lower limbs muscular fatigue. Ten adult males were asked to maintain a single leg upright posture as immobile as possible in two conditions of no-fatigue and fatigue of the calf muscles. This muscles fatigue was achieved by standing on the toes until exhaustion. Within a trial, vision was suppressed or reinserted by eyes closure or opening.
