Abstract

Dynamic balancing abilities can be assessed with perturbation tests. The present study examined the effectiveness of balancing (damping ratio) and the recovery action (directional ratio) in bipedal and dominant single-leg stance in the young population. Twenty-four healthy young adult participants completed unidirectional lateral perturbations successfully using a Posturomed
