Aging is known to have a degrading influence on many structures and functions of the human sensorimotor system. The present work assessed aging-related changes in postural sway using fractal and complexity measures of the center of pressure (COP) dynamics with the hypothesis that complexity and fractality decreases in the older individuals. Older subjects (68 ± 4 years) and young adult subjects (28 ± 7 years) performed a quiet stance task (60 s) and a prolonged standing task (30 min) where… CONTINUE READING
