Resting blood pressure and heart rate was measured prior to the test and needed to be within the pediatric norms. Conditions Each participant performed barefoot quiet stance

bony injury (eg, tibial stress fractures) by reducing their ability to attenuate lower-extremity shock during the stance phase of such activity. 2 , 14 Similarly, too little stiffness is suggested to increase one’s risk for soft-tissue injury (eg, anterior cruciate ligament and Achilles tendon injury

differences in balance, for example, by identifying and subtracting linear trends related to height. 23 , 24 However, recent evidence suggests that associations between postural sway and individual anthropometry differ by sex, not to mention other factors, such as stance condition. 25 , 26 These potentially

at 2.7 m/s while wearing standard shoes (Air Pegasus; Nike, Beaverton, OR). Data Processing Kinematic joint angles were calculated using 3D GAIT custom software (Running Injury Clinic Inc., Calgary, Alberta, Canada) and normalized to 100 data points for an entire gait cycle (stance and swing phases

a fixation task performed upright, the images on the retina are always changing ( Aytekin & Rucci, 2012 ). In the literature reports, many investigators have studied the interaction between visual functions and postural control in an upright stance (e.g.,  Giveans Yoshida, Bardy, Riley, & Stoffregen

In the clinical arena, the examiner observes the performance of the stance limb, as well as the trunk, during a single-leg squat.

reflection in relationship to scientific principles. Feldenkrais’s ontological position was that a person was not a physical body guided by an immaterial mind but a human being who had a choice about how to behave and how to learn. This contra-Cartesian stance gave priority to first-person experience as
