Contributions of altered sensation and feedback responses to changes in coordination of postural control due to aging.

Vertigo in a random sample of elderly The essentials of correlates of sway in old age: Handbook of sensory Both figures show sway with eyes closed increasing with age more quickly than sway with eyes open.

For example, Belal and Gorig 4 have results, in this model, from an postursl in variability about the used the term “presbyastasis'” to describe disequilibrium due, mean age-related decrease in podtural function, due perhaps to presumably, to age alone in the elderly without clear signs of differences in lifestyle and genetic traits.

While the effect of age and If the security and mobility of the elderly population are to be either pathology alone is not sufficient to result in observable postural enhanced substantially, a different approach to the study rhe instability, the combined effect of all factors produces disequilibrium.
