Abstract

Purpose: We assessed whether abdominal belts can facilitate static and dynamic postural balance in the elderly. Subjects: The subjects were fourteen healthy elderly persons (mean age 70.0 ± 6.8 yrs) with no significant medical history of neurological or orthopedic disease. Methods: Performance of static and dynamic postural standing balance with or without an abdominal belt was measured using a Gravicorder G-620 stabilometer (Anima Co.). Results: No significant difference was found in static balance between the two conditions, whereas a significant difference was observed in dynamic balance. Conclusion: These results suggest that wearing an abdominal belt causes higher abdominal pressure and improved dynamic postural balance due to adjusted postural tone.
