What is balance?
Pollock AS, et al. Clin Rehabil 2000. PMID 10945424
This article identifies mechanical definitions of balance and introduces clinical definitions of balance and postural control. Postural control is defined as the act of maintaining, achieving or restoring a state of balance during any posture or activity. ...

Using the systems framework for postural control to analyze the components of balance evaluated in standardized balance measures: a scoping review.
Sibley KM, et al. Arch Phys Med Rehabil 2015 - Review. Among authors: Beauchamp MK. PMID 25073007 Free article.
DATA EXTRACTION: A research assistant extracted descriptive characteristics and 2 reviewers independently coded components of balance in each measure using the Systems Framework for Postural Control, a widely recognized model of balance. ...CONCLUSIONS: Several standardized balance measures provide only partial information on postural control and omit important components of balance related to avoiding falls. ...

[Relationship between anthropometry and balance of postural control in children 6-9 years old].
Guzmán-Muñoz E, et al. Nutr Hosp 2019. PMID 30821164 Spanish. Free article.
Background: balance or postural control is a complex motor skill that aims to achieve an adequate postural balance from multiple sensorimotor processes in both static and dynamic activities. Although the relationship between anthropometric measurements and postural balance in children has not been clearly defined, it has been suggested that they could negatively influence postural control. ...

Components of Standing Postural Control Evaluated in Pediatric Balance Measures: A Scoping Review.
Sibley KM, et al. Arch Phys Med Rehabil 2017 - Review. Among authors: Beauchamp MK. PMID 28438514 Free article.
OBJECTIVE: To identify measures of standing balance validated in pediatric populations, and to determine the components of postural control captured in each tool. ...DATA EXTRACTION: Two reviewers extracted descriptive characteristics, and 2 investigators independently coded components of balance in each measure using a systems perspective for postural control, an established framework for balance in pediatric populations. ...

Evaluation of postural stability based on a force plate and inertial sensor during static balance measurements.
Lee CH and Sun TL. J Physiol Anthropol 2018. PMID 30545421 Free PMC article.
We investigated tools commonly used to study static balance. Differences in postural stability were analyzed using multiscale entropy (MSE) and feature analysis. ...Each stood on a force plate and wore a sensor while attempting to maintain postural stability for 30 s in four randomized experiments to evaluate their static balance via a copositive experiment with eyes open/closed and with standing on one foot or both feet. ...

Postural seated balance in children can be assessed with good reliability.
Pedersen LK, et al. Gait Posture 2016. PMID 27264406
BACKGROUND: Seated postural stability can be measured using Tekscan, CONFORMat. Standing postural stability has gained great clinical and, research value by use of different force platforms with mostly good reliability. ...This study can be used as reference for comparisons of seated balance in children with affected seated postural control and for evaluating a clinical treatment effect....

Biomechanical assessment of dynamic balance: Specificity of different balance tests.
Ringhof S and Stein T. Hum Mov Sci 2018. PMID 29438911
In consequence, a large number of balance tests have been developed. However, it is not yet known whether these tests (i) measure the same construct and (ii) can differentiate between athletes with different balance expertise. ...Pearson's correlations between the dynamic balance tests found no significant associations between the respective dynamic stability measures. ...

Can arm movements improve postural stability during challenging standing balance tasks?
Objero CN, et al. Gait Posture 2019. PMID 31473585
METHODS: A total of 20 healthy and physically active adults (females; n = 10; age, 20.7 ± 1.3 years) randomly completed (a) quiet standing postural control tasks of increasing difficulty (bipedal, tandem, unipedal) on a fixed and foam surface, and (b) a dynamic postural control task (Y balance test), under two different verbally conveyed instructions of arm position; (1) restricted arm movement and (2) free arm movement. Centre of pressure outcomes measured during quiet standing served as a measure of static balance performance. RESULTS: The results showed that restricting movements of the arms elicited large magnitude (Cohen's d = 0.97 - 1.28) increases in mediolateral postural sway (P < 0.05) but not anteroposterior (P > 0.05) sway. ...

Static balance norms in children.
Condon C and Cremin K. Physiother Res Int 2014. PMID 23703740
The results confirm the improvement in balance performance as children age especially after the 7 to 8th year. Girls tend to outperform boys across all balance tests. ...CONCLUSIONS: Results can be used for comparative purposes against age appropriate normative balance test scores. This removes the estimation from balance testing and the risk of applying an insufficient cut-off time....

Balance in Theatrical Dance Performance: A Systematic Review.
Clarke F, et al. Med Probl Perform Art 2018. PMID 30508830
METHODS: The databases MEDLINE, PubMed, Cumulative Index to Nursing & Allied Health (CINAHL), SPORTDiscus, Cochrane, ScienceDirect, and Google Scholar were searched using MeSH terms "postural balance," "balance, postural," "musculoskeletal equilibrium," and "postural equilibrium," and used in combination with "dance," between 1980 and 2016. ...A total of 39 articles focused on balance ability, including postural sway and control; 5 were related to multi-joint coordination; and 3 investigated laterality and balance. ...
