Body sway velocity parameters The COP position signal was low-pass filtered by reste a 2 nd order Butterworth filter, with cut-off frequency in 7 Hz, in direct and reverse order to avoid phase shifts.

Principles of neurological science. The assessment of body sway and the choice of the stability parameter s. Cortical alpha rhythms are correlated with body sway during quiet open-eyes standing in athletes: In the xy plane: Nevertheless, the RQ V could be useful to reveal the subjects having this index below the threshold, who are then indicated to carry out additional tests, and hence, to investigate a possible deficit in the integration of the visual information in the postural control system.

Experimental protocol The stabilometric tests were conducted at the same environmental conditions for all subjects. Discussion Ve well known, the sensory feedbacks in the dr control system provide complementary and partially redundant information for body sway stabilization.

This result agrees with Elliott et al. Besides, in such kind of experiment, the EO condition improves the balance control Ray rombrg al.

Teste de Romberg

As well known, the sensory feedbacks in the postural control system provide complementary and partially redundant information for body sway stabilization. On the other hand, in the EC condition, this coefficient varies from 0. Nevertheless, undisturbed postural stance condition produces small COM sways and hence COP sways, due to their dynamical relationshipso that those muscles sensors would be less influenced Rougier, According to Maurer et al.


The stabilometric tests were conducted at the same environmental conditions for all subjects. The removal of visual inputs increased the COP velocity in However, this finding differs from that obtained using a lognormal distribution. It is well accepted that in healthy subjects, feedback information from different subsystems is complementary and partially redundant, contributing in several ways to the body sway stabilization Chiari et al.

The role of vision in the body sway control: The RQ V unimodal distribution indicates the existence of just one group in terms of visual strategy. Introduction The human postural control during upright standing depends upon the central integration of afferent information from vestibular, somatosensory and visual systems Bear et al.

Body sway control, Center of pressure velocity, Lognormal distribution, Romberg’s test, Visual system. Sensory transformations and the use of multiple reference frames for reach planning.

The positive skewness observed in all Vm and RQ V distributions reveals that these parameters are not normally distributed. Asymmetric adaptation with functional advantage roomberg human sensorimotor control.

The importance of perceived relative motion in the romberb of posture. Postural stability of normal subjects measured by sway magnetometry: Specifications for building a vertical force platform designed for clinical stabilometry. Usually, the influence of visual input in romberf postural control has been studied using the classical Romberg’s Quotient test RQ based on the elliptical sway area RQ Adefined as the ratio between the area values in EC and EO conditions Chiari et al.


Additionally, the COP velocity has also the lowest reproducibility error and inter-subjects variability coefficient according to Raymakers et al. The sense of balance. Materials and Methods Participants The sample comprised healthy subjects 84 male and 60 femaleage ranging from 18 to 40 years, height of The unimodal distribution observed in all Vm and RQ V histograms suggests that the subjects can be considered as coming from a single group in terms of visual strategy.

The data was firstly collected with the subject in the eyes open condition during 30 s and then with eyes trste for the same time duration.

Teate a single stabilometric trail with one minute recording, the methodology consists firstly in adjusting a lognormal distribution to the RQ V data. Importance of body sway velocity information in controlling ankle extensor actives during quiet stance.

In the EO condition, the subjects were instructed to focus a central fixed target 1.
