  • base of support measurements for standing posture

    We are interested in finding out if anyone is involved in research or is
    aware of research regarding measurement of base of support in a self
    selected or natural standing posture. What anatomical landmarks are
    typically used to measure base of support, if force plates are not use?
    Does one measure from just one antomical landmark or more than one?
    Or would one take measures from a rectangular (or other) representation of
    the feet? Basically, we are looking for some type of clinical measure
    of this index of standing balance. We are also interested in knowing if
    previous work which has established normal base of support values (based
    on gender, age, body type, height, etc) has been published.
