1,2,6,7,10,16) With biomechanical studies indicating that crutch users spend twice as much time in single leg stance than when walking normally without crutches, (17) the impact of crutch type on postural sway in single leg stance may assist clinicians in identifying whether axillary or forearm crutches are more stable for an individual patient's use.
These data are isometric contractions using dynamic resistance training machines or for single leg stances.
6 yr) were screened, and unimpaired women performed the Step Test, the Single Leg Stance test (with eyes open/closed, on firm or foam surface), and the Unilateral Forefoot Balance Test.
The following foot placements were used (Figure 1); (i) feet placed parallel in hip width (parallel stance at hip width apart - PS), (ii) feet placed parallel at hip width apart, with the dominant leg placed in front of the non-dominant leg by a half of the foot length (semi-tandem stance--SET), (iii) feet placed together, medial edges of feet touching, and the dominant leg placed in front of the toes of the other leg by a half of the foot length (tandem stance--TAN), (iv) feet placed in the same position as is in TAN, however with the non-dominant leg in the front (contralateral tandem stance--CTA), and (v) a single leg stance with the other leg lifted from the floor with the knee bent at a 90[degrees] angle, with the thighs parallel (single leg stance--SL).
Programs utilizing single leg stance on stable and unstable surfaces, Star Excursion Balance Training (SBET), and mini-trampoline exercise have demonstrated improvement in single leg stance time and the reduction of postural sway among subjects (1, 5).
However, the current study used a single leg stance of the tilt table, clinically quite an aggressive protocol, which would clearly have effected torques much greater than those shown to achieve maximal range of dorsiflexion range in both normals and hypertonic individuals.
This is a functional test which uses a single leg stance while performing contralateral leg reaches for eight positions (anterior, posterior, medial, lateral, anteromedial, anterolateral, posteromedial, posterolateral).
