-to-face in the participant’s own home or in a private room on the university campus, according to participant preference. Before the interview started, written informed consent was taken, and functional mobility was assessed using the Timed Up and Go test ( Podsiadlo & Richardson, 1991 ). This test ensured

reports significant improvements in functional mobility as measured by the timed up and go ( Jehu et al., 2017a ), but no improvements in posture as measured through center of pressure measures ( Jehu et al., 2017b ) following BMT and BMT + C training. Therefore, this suggests that BMT and BMT + C may
