Body sway was studied at various body inclinations, voluntarily maintained for about 1 min, in young and elderly normals and in idiopathic parkinsonians. They stood on a dynamometric platform, whose output gave the instantaneous centre of foot pressure (CFP), its mean value and body sway area, with eyes open (EO) or closed (EC). Subjects held the normal upright stance, or the maximum possible inclined posture (body straight, rotated at the ankle joints) in forward or backward direction, or… CONTINUE READING
