OBJECTIVE To evaluate the correlation between body mass index (BMI) and postural balance in unipodal support. METHOD 40 males, age 26 +/- 5 yrs, body mass 72.3 +/- 11 kg, height 176 +/_ 6 cm and BMI 23.3 +/- 3.2 kg/m(2), were submitted to functional stability tests using the Biodex Balance System (stability evaluation protocol level 2, which allows an inclination of up to 20 degrees in the horizontal plane in all directions) to compare stability with BMI. RESULTS The general stability index… CONTINUE READING
