Abstract Objectives To investigate the between-day and within-day reliability of a sacral mounted accelerometer to quantify balance performance and different balance metrics. Design Experimental, cross-sectional. Setting Laboratorial experiment. Participants Thirty healthy volunteers. Main outcome measures Balance tasks were double leg stance, tandem stance and single leg stance with eyes open and closed. Performance was measured by converting accelerations into path length (PL, length of the sw...

Clinicians are in need of valid and objective measures of postural sway. Accelerometers have been shown to be suitable alternatives to expensive and stationary force plates. We evaluated the test-retest reliability and balance task discrimination capability of a new wireless triaxial accelerometer (YEI 3-Space Sensor). Four testing conditions (eyes open or closed, while on a firm or compliant surface) were used to progressively challenge the static balance of 20 healthy male (n = 8) and female (...

Background A protective effect on injury risk in youth sports through neuromuscular warm-up training routines has consistently been demonstrated. However, there is a paucity of information regarding the quantity and quality of coach-led injury prevention programmes and its impact on the physical performance of players. Objective The aim of this cluster-randomised controlled trial was to assess whether different delivery methods of an injury prevention programme (FIFA 11+) to coaches could improv...

Abstract The purpose of this study was to examine the feasibility of measuring the transmission of vibration using skin mounted inertial sensors and to assess the dynamic properties of the human spine during activities of daily living. Two inertial sensors were attached to skin overlying the first thoracic vertebra (T1) and another one over the first sacral vertebra (S1) with double sided adhesive tape. Subjects walked along a straight line, and up and down stairs at a self selected, comfortable...

BACKGROUND: Accelerometers are being used to assess postural control in adults, but there is little to support their reliability and validity. OBJECTIVE: To estimate the test-retest reliability of the balance accelerometry measure (BAM) and to describe the known-groups validity of the BAM composite score. METHODS: Two measures of standing postural sway were taken across six sensory (vision/stance surface) and motor stance (feet together or tandem) positions from eighteen patients with vestibular...

Background Clinicians need a practical, objective test of postural control that is sensitive to mild neurological disease, shows experimental and clinical validity, and has good test-retest reliability. We developed an instrumented test of postural sway (ISway) using a body-worn accelerometer to offer an objective and practical measure of postural control.

Accelerometry (ACC) shows promise as an easily implemented clinical measure of balance. The purpose of the study was to estimate test–retest reliability of ACC measures and determine the relationship between ACC measured at the pelvis and underfoot center of pressure (COP) measures during sensory organization test (SOT) conditions. Eighty-one subjects were recruited from the community with no known orthopedic or vestibular deficits (19–85 years). Subjects completed three consecutive, ninety seco...

Background: Sport is the leading cause of injury requiring medical attention among adolescents. We studied the effectiveness of a home-based balance-training program using a wobble board in improving static and dynamic balance and reducing sports-related injuries among healthy adolescents. Methods: In this cluster randomized controlled trial, we randomly selected 10 of 15 high schools in Calgary to participate in the fall of 2001. We then recruited students from physical education classes and ra...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: The control of balance is vital in many sporting activities as well as in activities of daily life. In order to treat deficiencies properly valid and reliable methods are needed to evaluate different aspects of stability. Muscle fatigue has been proposed to cause a change in postural control strategy, and the use of different tools and variables might therefore elucidate these changes. The aims of the present study were: to investigate if forceplate and accelerometer meas...
