BACKGROUND Tandem stance is a clinical measure of standing balance considered to assess postural steadiness in a heel-to-toe position by a temporal measurement. To our knowledge, no studies have evaluated the change of postural steadiness, expressed as force variability, over time. The objective of this paper is to investigate postural steadiness during 30 s of tandem stance in healthy elderly and young adults, and to explore the weight distribution between legs during tandem stance.
