We investigated whether the suprapostural effects of light digital touch on the modulation of postural sway can be modifiedby fingertip sensitivity. To achieve this, we recruitedthree types of athleteswith various fingertip sensitivity levels, including swimmers (high sensitivity), basketball players (intermediate sensitivity), and rowers (low sensitivity). We recorded the center of pressure (COP) excursions in 21 swimmers (20.57±0.42years), 22 basketball players (20.79±0.75years), and 22… CONTINUE READING
