The effects of repetition of quiet stance trials on body sway, recorded through a stabilometric platform, were studied in 12 normal subjects. With feet together, both with eyes open (EO) and closed (EC), a progressive shift forward of the centre of foot pressure (CFP) occurred with repetition. In addition, with EC, but not with EO, a significant progressive reduction in sway area (SA) and sway path (SP) occurred. With feet 10 cm apart, initial SA and SP values were significantly smaller than… CONTINUE READING
