If you go to www.slidebay.com you can search thousands of powerpoint presentations. If you type in "balance and postural stability" in the search window, you will find about 66 powerpoint options.

Subject: [BIOMCH-L] Balance and postural stability lecture


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)
