View Full Version : Balance and postural stability lecture

10-18-2006, 01:03 PM

Does anyone know of any powerpoint slides that are public resource or
do you have some of your own (if you are happy to share) regarding
balance and postural stability? I have done some web searching but have
not really found anything that suits my requirements.

This is required for a Masters paper taken by strength and conditioning
(primarily) students that focuses on training and assessment.

While I have some resources, i am looking for resources fro some of the
following areas.

1. Role of somatosensory, vestibular and visual systems
2. Dynamic vs static balance and assessment
3. Clinical- vs lab-based balance assessment: pros and cons,
reliability and validity
4. Relative effectiveness of different training approaches
(wobble-board, jumping and landing, strength training etc)
