Postural sway, reaction time, the Berg Scale and the Activities-specific Balance Confidence Scale (ABC) were administered to 80 elderly subjects (40 fallers and 40 healthy non-fallers) in order to determine reliable predictor for those at risk of falling. Non-fallers showed significantly faster reaction times when compared with fallers experimental group. Postural sway results show a higher oscillation displacement in the Y axis (lateral) than the X axis (anterior-posterior) and that fallers… CONTINUE READING
