The purpose of this study was to investigate postural muscle synergies (M-modes) and quantitative multi-mode coordination to ensure reproducible center of pressure (COP) in anterior–posterior trajectories associated with voluntary-induced perturbations in patients with mild cerebellar ataxia. We applied the framework of the uncontrolled manifold hypothesis for the patients with ataxia. Nine patients diagnosed with spinocerebellar degeneration (SCD) and nine healthy adults stood on a force plate… CONTINUE READING
