OBJECTIVES To estimate the test-retest and interrater reliability of the center of pressure-center of mass (COP-COM) variable of postural control in the elderly. DESIGN The biomechanic variable COP-COM, which represents the distance between the COP and the COM, was determined from 2 AMTI force platforms and 3 OPTOTRAK position sensors. Measurements were taken in quiet position, double leg stance, and eyes open and eyes closed conditions. SETTING Laboratory environment. PARTICIPANTS Forty… CONTINUE READING
