We investigated the change of the center of pressure (COP) after forward platform translations in healthy subjects. These studies were performed on 26 normal young subjects and 20 healthy elderly subjects, who had a normal neurologic examination. Subjects stood barefoot on a three dimensional force plate on the platform, with feet parallel. The duration of the forward platform translations was 0.15s, and the displacements were 3.75, 7.5, 10, 15, 20, and 30 mm. Six trials were carried out at… CONTINUE READING
