Some of our daily activities require us to have balance such as standing in the public transport, hanging out your clothes to dry and even walking. Balance is also important for posture, reacting to dynamic change in directions in reducing risk of injuries. When walking, we spend 40% of our time with one foot on the ground while the other foot is moving through the air. Single leg balance helps to train our ability to react to sudden changes to break falls, strengthens our lower limb muscles which reduces risk of fall and injuries such as ankle sprains.
Purpose: Assess balance and static postural control
Items Needed: Stopwatch and partner to time assessment.
