Factors affecting stabilometry recordings of single limb stance.


Stabilometry is an objective method for the quantitative study of postural equilibrium and has previously been shown to correlate to functional instability of the ankle joint. Stabilometric recordings of 25 soccer players did not confirm existing theories that an ankle joint injury itself produces a functional instability. Stabilometric recordings of 38 soccer players with and without ankle taping did not show that taping influenced the stabilometric values. In 10 soccer players with functional instability, a significant improvement of stabilometric results and subjective "giving way" feelings were found after 6 weeks of coordination on an ankle disk.
