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
