Vision is a significant factor in postural stability; this study is the first to report on the effect of OSHA regulated personal protective eyewear on physiological factors associated with postural stability. Twenty college students between the ages of 19 and 25 were randomly tested in each of three eyewear conditions (control, new, and artificially aged) using a NeuroCom® Balance Master System and the mCTSIB protocol. Subjects were pre-tested with no eyewear (control) on each day followed by a… 
Information processing capacity while wearing personal protective eyewear
TLDR
It is suggested that while personal protective eyewear may serve to protect an individual from eye injury, an individual's use of such personal protective glasses may have deleterious effects on sensory information associated with information processing and postural control.
Static and dynamic postural control in low-vision and normal-vision adults
TLDR
It is suggested that visual feedback is crucial for determining balance, especially for dynamic tasks and on foam surfaces, as low-vision individuals had worse postural stability than normal-vision adults in terms of dynamic tests and balance on foam surface.

The Relationship Between Physical Activity and Thermal Protective Clothing on Functional Balance in Firefighters
TLDR
Firefighters walk more slowly as a strategy to maintain balance when wearing TPC, which may be suboptimal given the emergent nature of fire suppression.
The influence of sport goggles on visual target detection in female intercollegiate athletes
TLDR
The findings suggest sport goggles may impair detection of peripheral visual stimuli in athletes and not only impaired the expected initial performance but also impaired visual target detection after performance improvements were seen.

The Influence of Flooring on Standing Balance among Older Persons
TLDR
It is suggested that floor compliance influences standing postural stability in older people, particularly in destabilizing visual environments, with the largest effects found among the older participants.
The influence of dynamic visual environments on postural sway in the elderly.
TLDR
The results of this study suggest that elderly are more influenced by dynamic visual information for balance than the young, particularly when cues from the ankles are altered.
Effect of work load and respirator wear on postural stability, heart rate, and perceived exertion.
TLDR
A greater increase in sway during the postural balance test could be attributable to the increasing work load-induced proprioceptive fatigue effect on the nervous system's ability to process signals from proprioception systems incongruent with body sway.
A study of the clinical test of sensory interaction and balance.
TLDR
The Clinical Test of Sensory Interaction and Balance is an inexpensive, easily administered test that provides information about the ability to stand upright under several sensory conditions and is a useful screening tool for examining static standing balance.
Visual stabilization of posture. Physiological stimulus characteristics and clinical aspects.
TLDR
The purpose of the present investigation was to obtain quantitative data in man by means of posturography of fore-aft and lateral body sway in relation to different visual stimulus characteristics, which demonstrates clinical relevance in patients with oculomotor disturbances.
Effect of altered sensory conditions on multivariate descriptors of human postural sway
TLDR
The results imply that normal postural coordination of the trunk and legs requires both somatosensory and visual information and that each sensory modality makes a unique contribution to posture control.
Effect of mild head injury on postural stability in athletes.
TLDR
The findings suggest that computerized dynamic posturography is a useful tool in objectively assessing postural stability in subjects with mild head injuries.

Visual, vestibular and somatosensory contributions to balance control in the older adult.
TLDR
Age- and pathology-related changes in the relative contributions of visual and somatosensory inputs to dynamic balance control were evaluated and indicated that older adults were less stable under conditions in which peripheral vision was occluded and ankle somatosensation was limited.
Assessing the Influence of Sensory Interaction on Balance
Assessment of standing balance is essential to the treatment of instability in the neurologic patient. The development of clinical techniques for evaluating instability is dependent on a thorough
