View Full Version : balance perturbation test!

08-10-2004, 05:02 AM
Dear friends,

I would appreciate your comments on the following question.

We are working on postural control of scoliotic patients. We are using Dynamic Stability Platform system.

1- For perturbation, we want to push the subject with 10% of her body weight. How should we apply this pushing force in order to make sure that we are pushing with the same force we want?
How should we control the speed of the applied force?

2- To study the postural control in sitting position, could we place a chair
over the platform? What is the best way?

Thanks in advance
