. 35 Static Postural Control Testing Participants were asked to stand barefoot on a force platform (Techno Concept, Pitaugier, France; sampling rate: 40 Hz), their feet oriented 15° laterally from the sagittal plane, their heels 4 cm apart, and their arms along their body. Landmarks placed on the

posture, the pivot point is the hip and ankle, respectively. The inertial mass below the pivot point is larger when sitting because the legs and the gluteal region is in contact with the force platform. This large inertial mass relative to standing (when the only segment in contact with the platform is

. An eight-camera motion capture system (Oxford Metrics Limited, West Way, Oxford, UK) sampling at 200 Hz was synchronized with two force platforms (Advanced Mechanical Technology, Inc., Watertown, US), embedded midway on the walkway sampling at 1,000 Hz. Reflective markers were affixed to the right

Experimental Apparatus and Testing A 3D force platform (Balance Plate 6501, Bertec Corp., Columbus, OH, USA) was used to measure CoP displacement during static and dynamic balance performance. Angular displacement of

, & Lee, 2015 ). The system consisted of a safety bar and an equilateral triangular force platform. It was connected to a laptop via Bluetooth technology at a sampling frequency of 50 Hz. The static postural balance using the Good Balance System was measured under two visual conditions, eyes open and eyes

walk along a 10-m long walkway at their self-selected usual walking pace until they had completed at least three gait cycles from the left and right sides, with the full foot landing on the force platform ( Ko, Ling, Schreiber, Nesbitt, & Ferrucci, 2011 ). The raw coordinate data of marker positions

without poles, at a self-selected pace along a 5-m walkway. Thirty-nine reflective markers were positioned at specific anatomical landmarks according to the full-body Plug-in gait model (Vicon, Oxford, UK). Two force platforms (Kistler, Winterthur, Switzerland) embedded in the walkway were used to collect
