-static balance control) by maintaining our center of mass (COM) within our base of support. Common metrics of quasi-static balance control (ie, postural steadiness) can be derived from underfoot center of pressure (COP) measures during quiet standing, 8 and different stance configurations (ie, double leg

that postural control reflects the ability to maintain a desired postural orientation 8 and focuses primarily on the overall magnitude of center of pressure (CoP) displacements. However, multiple timescales of sensorimotor control regulate upright standing and are reflected in the dynamic structure of

my players played well or whether I noticed some progress. —Richard, 32 years old, a youth football coach This quote comes from a coach who participated in an intervention on motivating coaching ( Reynders et al., 2019 ) and illustrates that contextual pressures on coaches can be conveyed in subtle

fractal analyses have been applied to postural sway as a way to understand the causes of decreased sensorimotor function (e.g.,  Capodaglio, Cimolin, Tacchini, Parisio, & Galli, 2012 ; Cimolin et al., 2014 ). These alternative protocols identify patterns in the motion of the center of pressure (COP) that

Note that indices of postural sway, including average speed of the center of pressure (COP) and area covered by the COP signal, have been used to quantify postural stability across conditions and populations ( Bonnet, Carello, & Turvey, 2009 ; Błaszczyk, 2016 ; Cameron & Lord, 2010 ; Redfern

The use of lower-body positive-pressure (LBPP) or body-weight-supported (BWS) exercise has become increasingly popular in rehabilitation and injury prevention settings. 1 – 4 A key benefit of applying LBPP is that cardiovascular fitness and lower limb function can be maintained, while the
