[Purpose] The purpose of this study was to clarify the effect of visual information on the strategy of the feet by measuring the center of pressure (COP) sway of the right and left feet during tandem standing. [Subjects] The subjects were 10 healthy adult males. [Methods] COP sway was measured with the eyes open and closed in tandem standing with the right foot at the rear. Differences in COP sway variables and loading of the right and left feet were analyzed. [Results] Loading on the right…

Frequency analysis of the center of pressure in tandem stance in community-dwelling elderly
TLDR
The present findings indicated that elderly participants with diminished balance control had difficulty with rapid adjustment centered on the ankles, suggesting that rapid joint movement involving interlimb coordination centered onThe ankles is required to maintain tandem stance.

TLDR
Balance scores predicted the occurrence of multiple falls among elderly residents and were strongly correlated with functional and motor performance in stroke patients.
Measuring balance in the elderly: preliminary development of an instrument
TLDR
The goal for this study was to develop a measure of balance appropriate for elderly individuals and there was a high degree of internal consistency, a Cronbach's alpha of .96, which indicates the movements reflect a single underlying dimension.
