The number of primary hip arthroplasties is growing every year. One of the most common long complications is the aseptic loosening of the prosthesis leading to serious complications in patients life, pain and following surgeries. In the literature, there is a lack of studies regarding balance impairment in this group of patients, which is why there was a need to conduct the study in order to find possible falling risk factors and simple functional, diagnostic test. The aim of the study was to assess functional state and static balance disorders in patients admitted to orthopaedic department due to loosened hip prosthesis prior to its replacement or removal. Methods: The study population were 30 patients (15 women and 15 men) admitted to Orthopaedic Department for diagnosis and treatment of loosened hip prosthesis. Patients’ mean age was 71.67 ± 9.21, body height 169.20 ± 8.75 cm, body weight 77.83 ± 12.96 kg. The clinical control group consisted of 30 healthy subjects age-, body height- and weight-matched, without degenerative disorders of lower extremities. Function was assessed with Harris Hip score. The static balance test was conducted in the mornings, in quiet separate room on bi-modular stabilometric platform CQStab2P, registering the movement of centre of foot pressure (COP). Results: Measurements with eyes open and closed showed significant differences in limb loads – the load to the healthy limb was several times greater. Results of tests on the platform with eyes closed showed significantly worse balance in patients group. Their total statokinesiogram path was longer, and their COP sways number was greater. Similarly to the test with eyes open, the load of the healthy limb was much greater. Conclusion: Hip replacement loosening results in significant worsening of balance parameters. Balance assessment could be an additional useful diagnostic tool for hip replacement loosening available for physiotherapists.

The aim of this study was to evaluate the reliability of the novel posturographic procedure and to investigate the relationships between parameters of this procedure and clinical tests. We hypothesised the proposed step initiation procedure to be reliable method of balance and motor disability assessment, especially in patients with neurological deficits. Also, we assumed high significant correlation between parameters of step initiation procedures and clinical tests. Methods: The 35 subjects with idiopathic PD and 35 agedmatched healthy controls participated in this study. The gait initiation was measured using two force platforms. The procedure consisted of three phases: (1) quiet standing on a first platform (2) crossing on the second platform, (3) quiet standing on a second platform. Testing was carried out in four conditions: unperturbed trial, obstacle crossing, step-up and step-down. Results: In the proposed gait initiation procedure, the vCOP, raCOP and rmsCOP showed an excellent reliability (ICC > 0.80). For transit phase, reliability of all variables in all conditions also was excellent (ICC = 0.8–0.9). There were only a few associations between Tinetti scores and posturographic variables in controls, but in PD patients the significant correlations were found between the proposed measures and the UPDRS, Tinetti, FRT, TUG and with the BBS. Conclusions: The proposed gait initiation procedure is reliable and very suitable for the assessment of patients with Parkinson’s disease. It can be used as an objective assessment of the clinical condition and dynamic balance, and help in the designing and programming of the appropriate rehabilitation and treatment.

The purpose of this work was to assess the differences of the values of body posture indices, measured with the Moire’s method, between girls and boys aged 13 and the relationships of these values with the results of the Y-Balance Test. Methods: The study involved a group of healthy volunteers attending junior high schools in Cracow. The group consisted of 20 girls and 35 boys. Basic somatic parameters were measured within this work: body height and weight. Body posture was assessed according to the general methodology of the Moire’s technique and 14 body posture indices were obtained as a result: 6 in the sagittal plane, 1 in the axial plane and 7 in the coronal plane. Postural stability was assessed with the Y-Balance Test (YBT). Results: The studied girls and boys had practically the same body posture – statistical differences were found only in 3 out of 14 assessed indices measured with the Moire’s technique. Scoliosis was found in as many as 51% of the subjects, however, mean values of deviations from the C7-S1 line were not large. Conclusions: In the group of girls, the set of blades (below – above) was statistically significantly correlated with the global YBT result for the right inferior extremity, and in the group of boys – the set of the waist triangles (below – above) was statistically significantly correlated with the global YBT results for the right and left inferior extremities.

Identification of factors that affect postural stability may help to improve diagnostic accuracy and enhance the quality of treatment and rehabilitation. This study sought to assess the relationship between postural stability parameters and anthropometric factors of persons with hearing impairment (HI). Methods: The study included 128 individuals – 42 subjects with HI and 86 without HI (healthy controls). Research methodology included an interview and a medical examination, anthropometric measurements and stabilometric tests on platforms with stable and unstable surfaces. Results: In the group of female study participants with HI, significant correlations were only noted between body height and the Fall Risk Index (FRI). In the group of male subjects with HI, the study revealed significant correlations between FRI and body mass, BMI, % MM (muscle mass percentage) and % FAT (fat percentage). Moreover, moderate correlation was found between COP path with eyes open and body mass, while high correlation was observed between COP path with eyes open and BMI, % MM and % FAT. No significant correlation was noted between FRI and body height in men with HI. Conclusions: The examination of correlations between postural stability and body build of persons with HI did not confirm the effects of body height on postural stability in the examined group of individuals with HI, but revealed a greater influence of somatic parameters (body mass, BMI, % MM, % FAT) on postural stability in hearing-impaired men.

The aim of the study was to assess static balance after reconstruction of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), using gracialis tendons graft (GR) or semi-tendinosus (ST), compared to patients treated with the Ligament Advanced Reinforcement System (LARS). The study was performed within 36 to 48 months after the surgery. Methods: The study included 96 patients. The LARS group consisted of 44 patients, control group operated with ST/GR tendons included 52 patients. The stabilometric platform Alpha was used to assess the static balance. Two 30-second trials in the double-leg stance position with eyes opened and closed were performed. The distribution of loads in a free standing was also assessed. Results: In the test with open eyes the subjects from the LARS group had a significantly longer center of pressure (COP) path, a higher mean velocity, a greater mean COP sway in foot in the lateral direction and a larger path area occupied by the COP graph. During the tests with eyes closed, a significant difference occurred in the mean displacement of COP in lateral direction – greater in the LARS group. In addition, all parameters deteriorated during the tests with eyes closed in both groups. Conclusions: In static balance assessed with eyes closed, more proprioceptive deficits may appear in the LARS group.

The aim of this study was to investigate whether a single bout of core stability exercises improves body balance immediately after the bout of exercise and during a retention test. Methods: The study involved 16 women (age 22–25 years, body weight 60.5 ± 5.2 kg, height 166 ± 5.4 cm). Postural stability was assessed in the mediolateral (ML) and anteroposterior (AP) planes separately on a force plate (Kistler 9286 AA) during quiet standing on a soft support surface with the eyes closed. Subjects were measured 4 times: just before (T0), 1 minutes after (T1 m), 30 minutes after (T30 m), and 24 hours after the workout (T24 h). Postural balance was evaluated by five parameters based on the center of pressure (COP) signal: variability (VAR), mean velocity (VEL), sample entropy (ENT), frequency (FRE), and fractal dimension (FRA). Results: We observed a decrease in VAR and VEL in the ML plane at T30 m and T24 h, compared to T0. The COP entropy significantly increased in the ML plane at T24 h, compared to T0. Conclusions: A single bout of core stability exercises improved the control of the mediolateral body balance. This effect was evident within 30 minutes after exercise, and remained for at least 24 hours. In addition, 24 hours after exercise we observed an increased automaticity in the strategy to maintain a stable upright stance.

The purpose of this study was to assess if 65 dB and 4000 Hz stimuli affect postural stability of young normal hearing people. Methods: Posturography examinations belong to clinical tests which evaluate the motor skills. Posturography can be divided into static posturography and dynamic posturography. In both, static posturography and dynamic posturography, patient stays on the platform with opened and closed eyes, but in the case of dynamic one, platform is unstable. In this study the Multitest Equilibre platform produced by FRAMIRAL was used. Patients took part in tests with opened and closed eyes, on stable and unstable platform. Additionally patients were exposed to 65 dB and 4000 Hz acoustic stimuli. The sound pressure level, and frequency was belonging to the best audibly frequency range. Results: Parameters such as velocity and surface were examined. The difference between velocity measured with acoustic stimuli and without acoustic stimuli was observed. On the other hand there was no difference in surface results. Conclusions: The statistically significant difference between velocity of patients center of gravity movements, measured on unstable platform, in the presence of 4000 Hz, 65 dB acoustic stimulus and without additional disturbances was observed.

Purpose: The aim of the study was to analyze postural stability in Parkinson's disease patients. A total of 32 subjects were tested, including 26 (81.25%) women and 6 (18.75%) men. These were patients with advanced, idiopathic Parkinson’s disease. The disease duration was over 5 years. Methods: The study was conducted in the Posturology Laboratory at the Department of Medicine and Health Sciences, Jan Kochanowski University in Kielce (Poland). The Biodex Balance System was used for evaluation of postural stability. Postural Stability Testing was performed with both feet positioned on a stable surface with the eyes open. Results: The Overall Stability Index in the whole group was 0.5°. The higher Overall Stability Index in women is indicative of slightly worse postural stability compared to men, although in both groups, it was within norms (Z = 2.0545, p = 0.0399). Anterior-Posterior Overall Stability Index (A/P) was an average of 0.35°. The Medial-Lateral Overall Stability Index (M/L) was an average of 0.27°. Both women and men were observed to have higher postural sway in the sagittal plane than the frontal plane. The vast majority of the subjects maintained in Zone A during testing (99.94%), and was slightly bent backwards to the right and in Quadrant IV (61.53%). Conclusions: Regular control of postural stability in Parkinson's disease patients is significant due to the risk of falls.

The testing of dynamic balance involves tests that assess the muscle control of spatial changes of the position of the centre of gravity over the base of support. The purpose of this work was to determine the structure of the Y-balance test and its accuracy based on the measurements of strength performance of the muscles acting on the knee joint, as well as the flexibility and balance in boys aged 14 years. Methods: The study included 43 schoolboys regularly participating in physical education lessons. The examination of postural stability was conducted with the use of the Y-balance test. The measurements of muscle strength and of resistance to fatigue of the extensors and flexors of knee joints in isometric contraction were performed on a measurement stand in a standard position with the use of tensometric sensors. The measurement of mobility range of the lower extremity joints was performed according to the SFTR. The examination of balance was performed with the use of the modified ‘Flamingo balance test’. Results: The factor structure of the Y-balance test results for the left and right lower extremities is similar and includes five principal independent factors that characterise the structure of analysed variables. They explain 76% and 74% of communality in total for the left and the right extremity, respectively. Conclusions: The extracted factor structure points to a hybrid structure of the Y-balance test and shows its accuracy in the measurements of the lower limb joint mobility and strength performance of knee joint extensors.

Purpose: The purpose of this paper was an attempt to evaluate changes in the level of static equilibrium and the impact of visual information on the effectiveness of postural reactions of women in geriatric age. Methods: 36 senior female residents of L.A. Helc Nursing Home in Cracow, Poland, were examined. Considering the age, 2 groups were distinguished: group I – women at the age 71– 80 and group II – women aged 81–87. Their balance was assessed with stabilographic platform CQ Stab 2P. Measurements of the body stability were made in free standing position, with eyes open and eyes closed. Comparison of selected indicators of stability between the groups of the women was made with the Mann–Whitney U test. To assess the significance of differences between the results obtained in the test with eyes open and without visual control the Wilcoxon test was used. Results: Statistically significant differences between the results obtained in the groups concerned the length of the statokineziogram path on the X-axis, as well as the average speed of the COP movement on the X-axis. In the test without the visual control both groups showed statistically significant deterioration in most indicators of stability. Conclusions: Loss of postural control as a result of progressive involutional changes in the aging process is characterized by the intensity of the body instability in the frontal plane. These results indicate the need of applying in the rehabilitation programmes for elderly people adequate solutions, including the exercises directed at developing new or enhancing the decaying adjustment mechanisms.

Purpose: The pain, motor and sensory deficits are common symptoms of the lumbar disc disorder, and they can significantly affect human postural control. The aim of this study was to assess postural stability in patients with severe symptoms of lumbar spine disc disease qualifying them for surgical treatment and to compare them with a control group. Methods The study involved 103 subjects: 54 patients and 49 healthy subjects. Patient’s mean age was 46.4 ± 11.3 years, mean body height 172.2 ± 10.3 cm, mean body mass was 83.1 ± 18.9 kg and mean body mass index (BMI) was 27.9 ± 5.2 kg m-2. The mean time of their recent pain episode was 9.7 ± 8.5 month. Results: We found statistically significant differences between postural stability in patients with lumbar spine disc disease and the control group. The measurements taken with eyes closed, as compared with the clinical control group, revealed higher and statistically significant values of the mean amplitude of COP, mean amplitude of COP on sagittal plane, and maximal sway in sagittal plane parameters. The analysis of pressure value differences between the right and left lower limbs in both groups revealed statistical significance. In the study population the difference was significantly greater in comparison to the control group. The patients has significantly greater asymmetry of lower limb load. Conclusions: 1. Patients with lumbar spine discogenic pain had decreased postural control. 2. The patients had significant asymmetry in foot pressure, resultant from pain radiating to a lower limb.

Content available remote 3-D trajectory of body sway angles: A technique for quantifying postural stability
EN
The article focuses on a non-invasive method of quantifying human postural stability. Recent alternatives to quantify human postural stability have several limitations – the major one being the evaluation of only two physical quantities of body movement in 3D space – however, a complex movement pattern can be described better using three physical quantities. A cheap 3DOF orientation tracker (Xsens MTx unit) placed on patient's trunk was used to measure roll, pitch and yaw. Using a novel method based on the total length of the 3-D trajectory of body sway angles, we are able to evaluate 3-D movements of the trunk. The trajectory length obtained by plotting roll, yaw and pitch vs. each other (i.e. curve in the 3-D plot) was used to identify a pathological balance control. In this study, ten patients with progressive cerebellar ataxia and eleven healthy subjects were measured and a statistical analysis was performed. The results yielded by new method show that the total trajectory lengths of patients with cerebellar disease are significantly larger than the total trajectory lengths of healthy subjects. It is evident from the median of the total trajectory lengths that the method based on the data obtained by an inexpensive orientation tracker may be used to quantify human postural stability and enables for studying body sway in 3-D space. For example, the 3-D deviations of the trunk angles in a time period that are caused by a tremor in 3-dimensional space can be studied accordingly by the method.

The goal of this study was to quantify the effect of experience and handrail presence on trunk muscle activities, rotational spinal stiffness and postural stability of construction workers. We evaluated spinal stability, and objective and subjective postural stability in 4 expert and 4 novice construction workers who were performing a manual task in a standing position on a scaffold, with and without a safety handrail. Center of pressure was computed using measurements taken with insole pressure transducers. Muscle activity was monitored usingsurface electrodes placed on 8 trunk muscles that predicted active trunk rotational stiffness. Standard deviations of the center of pressure, back muscle activity and spinal stiffness were greater in novices and in the absence of a handrail. We infer that the risk of a fall due to postural and spinal instability may be greater with a lower level of experience and in the absence of a safety handrail.

Purpose: Correct foot structure is important due to locomotion and postural stability. The aim of this study was to determine the relationships between morphological foot structure and balance indices in a quiet standing position in women over 65 years of age. Methods: The study included 116 women aged 65-90 years. The mean age was 70.6±8.4 years and BMI 29.1±3.4 m/kg2. The measured indices included postural control while standing on both feet and photogrammetric foot evaluation. An analysis was performed of the selected foot and balance indices. Results: There were no significant differences observed in the feet structure. Certain correlations between some foot indices and the indices of postural control were noted. The increased differences in the width indices between the right and the left foot lead to balance deterioration. Larger angles of valgity and varus deformity of toes and indices describing the longitudinal arch and transverse front arch of the foot have the greatest impact on the deterioration of balance in the medio-lateral axis. Conclusions: The differences between the indices and morphological indices for the right and the left foot are not significant, which indicates the proportionate formation of feet in the individual life. The increased differences in the width indices between the right and the left foot lead to balance deterioration. Larger angles of valgity and varus deformity of toes and indices describing the longitudinal arch and transverse front arch of the foot have the greatest impact on the deterioration of balance in the medio-lateral axis.

The osteoarthritis of the hip dominant symptom is pain that leads to disability and to postural and gait disorders. The aim of this study was to analyze postural stability and its impact on disability and pain. The study population consisted of 60 patients and control group of 30. Group 1 (n = 30) included patients with unilateral coxarthrosis, aged 56.2 (±12.3) years, BMI 25.17 (±2.87) kg/m2. There were 16 men (53.3%). The mean age of patients in group 2 (n = 30) with bilateral coxarthrosis was 62.3 (±12.1) years; the mean BMI was 24.87 (±2.06) kg/m2. There were 15 men in this group (50%). The patients were evaluated using the WOMAC, the Harris Hip Score, VAS and the Biodex Balance System. Both study groups had stability index results different than the control group. There was a significant correlation between the stability indexes and BMI. VAS correlated with the M-L plane variance. In group 2, there were significant differences related to disability for the disability scales for all measured parameters. Balance disorder is a basic parameter found in coxathrosis. There is a statistically significant correlation between balance disorders and BMI, VAS and functional scales.

The position of the trunk can be negatively influenced by many diseases. Several methods can be used for identifying defects in balance and coordination as a result of pathology of the musculoskeletal or nervous system. The aim of this article is to examine the relationship between the three methods used for analysis of trunk sway and compare two fundamentally different MoCap systems. We used a camera system and a 3DOF orientation tracker placed on subject’s trunk, and measured inclination (roll) and flexion (pitch) during quiet stance. Ten healthy participants in the study were measured with eyes open and closed. The pitch versus roll plots of trunk were formed, and the area of the convex hull, area of confidence ellipse and total length of the trajectory of the pitch versus roll plot were calculated. The statistical analysis was performed and strong correlation between the area of the convex hull and area of the confidence ellipse was found. Also, the results show moderate correlation between the area of the confidence ellipse and total length of the trace, and moderate correlation between the area of the convex hull and total length of the trace. In general, the different MoCap systems show different areas and lengths but lead to the same conclusions. Statistical analysis of the participants with eyes open and eye closed did not show significant difference in the areas and total lengths of the pitch versus roll plots.

Celem pracy była ocena stabilności ciała i jej mechanicznej kontroli przy staniu swobodnym na boso i staniu w ortozach kończyn dolnych u dzieci z mózgowym porażeniem dziecięcym. Badaniami objęto 40 dzieci z mózgowym porażeniem dziecięcym (MPDz) - pacjentów Mazowieckiego Centrum Neuropsychiartii w Zagórzu koło Warszawy. Grupę badawczą podzielono na dwie podgrupy ze względu na postać kliniczną MPDz: 20 osób z niedowładem połowiczym i 20 osób z niedowładem obustronnym. Wiek badanych mieścił się w przedziale 2-15 lat. Do oceny stabilności ciała i jej mechanicznej kontroli wykorzystano metodę stabilograficzną przy użyciu sprzętu AMTI NetForce OR6-7-1000. Pomiar równowagi przeprowadzono w dwóch pozycjach: stojącej swobodnie na boso i stojącej swobodnie w ortozach kończyn dolnych. Wyniki badań wskazują, że do poprawy stabilności ciała w pozycji stojącej po założeniu ortoz kończyn dolnych dochodzi w obu grupach badawczych, co objawia się zmniejszeniem wartości parametrów stabilograficznych. Istotne zmiany wykazano jedynie w grupie dzieci z niedowładem połowiczym, w zakresie: przemieszczenia COP lewo-prawo, średniej prędkości oraz długości całkowitej stabilogramu.

Postępujący charakter stwardnienia rozsianego pogłębia ubytki neurologiczne oraz niepełnosprawność, która w niektórych przypadkach przybiera postać znacznego inwalidztwa. Do naj-częstszych problemów osób z SM (multiple sclerosis) należą zaburzenie chodu i równowagi. Różnorodność i zmienność objawów oraz trudny do przewidzenia przebieg choroby powodują, że rehabilitacja chorych jest skomplikowanym zadaniem. Celem pracy było określenie wpływu ćwiczeń równoważnych oraz ćwiczeń koordynacji wzrokowo-ruchowej (biofeedback) na stabilność postawy osób ze stwardnieniem rozsianym, zobrazowaną wielkością marginesu stabilności. Badaniami objęto 20 osób z SM w wieku od 22 do 67 lat. Efektem zastosowanych ćwiczeń było uzyskanie istotnie większego przedniego marginesu stabilności (p = 0,00004). Natomiast tylny margines stabilności uległ nieistotnej statystycznie zmianie. Uzyskany istotny wzrost parametru koordynacji wzrokowo--ruchowej (p = 0,0003) wskazuje na większą skuteczność świadomej autokorekcji postawy z zastosowaniem wzrokowego sprzężenia zwrotnego. Uzyskane wyniki dowodzą większej sprawności kon-troli postawy u osób chorych na SM po fizjoterapii.

Progressive nature of the multiple sclerosis (SM) results in the increase of neurological defects and the intensification of disability which in some cases turns into notable invalidity. The most regnant symptoms of SM are gait disorders and impaired balance. Rehabilitation of patients suffering from SM is complicated due to the variability and changeability of symptoms and difficulties in predicting illness course. The aim of the study was to examine the influence of the stability training and visual-motor coordination exercises (biofeedback) on the body stability. 20 patients between 22 and 67 years of age were enrolled into this study. The result of exercises was significance improvement of front stability margin (p = 0,00004). However, back stability margin insignificantly changed insignificantly only. The significancet improvement of visual-motor coordination (p = 0,0003), was observed, it means the improvement of the effectiveness of self correction of posture based on a conscious visual control of own posture (biofeedback). This study has shown that physiotherapy resulted in better postural control of patients with SM.
