Adolescent idiopathic scoliosis girls are known to display standing imbalance. In addition to a motor deficit problem, the axial torsion of the spine and trunk torsion could reflect an imbalance around the vertical axis. Unlike the excursion of the center of pressure (COP), the forces and moments were rarely addressed to characterize the quiet standing balance. Nonetheless, one dynamical parameter, called free moment (T V), representing the vertical torque on the feet can reflect the… CONTINUE READING
