Abstract Conclusion: When measured together, it seems that vision and proprioception as well as position of the vestibular organ affect postural sway, vision the most. Mediolateral (ML) sway does not seem to be influenced by the position of the vestibular organ. Objective: To investigate how postural sway was affected by provocation of vision, by the position of the vestibular organ, and by provocation of proprioception, when measured together. Methods: Postural sway was measured by using a… 
Impact of Gender, Change of Base of Support, and Visual Deprivation on Postural Balance Control in Young, Healthy Subjects
TLDR
Postural sway was altered more significantly on a foam surface than on a firm surface and symmetry between the DL and NDL was observed, concluding that women have better dynamic balance control than men.
Visuo-postural dependency index (VPDI) in human postural control
TLDR
Fifteen VPDI s showed to be robust indicators of visual input modulation, and the variation across their magnitudes of modulation revealed a non-homogeneous response to changes in visual stimuli.
Effect of vision and orientation in human balance
TLDR
The results show that biomechanical parameters can be used in measuring body movements in postural stability, and it has been shown that postural sway is increased when eyes are closed, due to the loss of orientation on the base of support.
Effect of vision loss on plasticity of the head and neck proprioception.
TLDR
Long-term vision loss or impairment does not lead to compensatory enhancement of head and neck proprioception and motor control and acquired experience contributes to HRT performance in the blind and has long-lasting effects on plasticity in the development of proprioceptions and sensorimotor control.
Sensory Re-Weighting in Human Bipedal Postural Control: The Effects of Experimentally-Induced Plantar Pain
TLDR
The results lend support to the sensory re-weighting hypothesis whereby the central nervous system dynamically and selectively adjusts the relative contributions of sensory inputs in order to maintain balance when one or more sensory channels are altered by the task (novel or challenging), environmental or individual conditions.
The D+R Balance application: a novel method of assessing postural sway
TLDR
This feasibility study suggests that the iPhone D+R Balance application deserves further investigation as a means of assessing postural sway and may provide an alternative to current dynamic posturography systems.
The Refraction Assessment and the Electronic Trial Frame Measurement during Standing or Sitting Position Can Affect Postural Stability
TLDR
This cohort study included 37 patients examined using Adaptica’s Kaleidos and VisionFit and revealed that the differences in the visual acuity parameters obtained in standing and seated positions were statistically significant; the Student's t-test showed a p-value < 0.001 in all parameter averages.
Vestibular Stimulation Causes Contraction of Subjective Time
TLDR
The experiments demonstrate that the contraction of the subjective time during balancing tasks with closed eyes is most likely of vestibular origin.

Postural stability during visual stimulation and the contribution from the vestibular apparatus
TLDR
When combined with vestibular dysfunction, visual flow can exacerbate reductions in postural stability, which may be one of the mechanisms underlying visual vertigo, as evaluated using frequency analysis of body sway elicited by optokinetic stimulation.
Postural control and age.
TLDR
The children were sensitive of pressoreceptor and proprioceptive perturbation, indicating the importance of these systems for their postural control.

TLDR
V Vestibular rehabilitation should focus on decreasing hypermetria, decreasing an overdependence on surface somatosensory inputs, increasing use of any remaining vestibular function, substituting or adding alternative sensory feedback related to trunk sway, and practicing challenging balance tasks on unstable surfaces.

Effects of hypothermic anesthesia of the feet on vibration-induced body sway and adaptation.
TLDR
It is suggested that somatosensory input from mechanoreceptors in the foot soles contribute significantly in maintaining postural control, but the sensory loss could be compensated for.

TLDR
It is concluded that pressor information from the feet contributes significantly to postural control in humans and is important in compensating for vestibular disturbance.
