Description

Even though recent research suggests reactive balance training (unexpected, external perturbations) has more effective, long term results than proactive training (self-initiated actions), the latter is used most often in a clinical setting due to its affordability and convenience. This pilot study sought to develop a safe, affordable, and easily portable perturbation-inducing device to be used for reactive balance training.
