Contact of the index finger with a stable surface greatly attenuates postural sway in blindfolded subjects. The time course of postural stabilization was measured after subjects made finger contact with a surface. Subjects (n=12) were tested standing in a heel-to-toe stance in 25 s duration trials. The subject stood with the index finger above but not contacting a laterally placed surface, and made finger contact when cued midway through the trial. Fingertip contact forces stabilized with a… CONTINUE READING
