Abstract

The aim of this study was to explore the effect of real-time visual feedback provided by a video camera on performance of the star excursion balance test (SEBT) in healthy subjects. We compared the performance of the SEBT using the maximum reach distance (MRD) in 20 healthy participants (10 male and 10 female, 26.8 ± 3.7 years) under two conditions: without feedback and whilst they viewed their movements in real time on a screen in front of them via a video camera. The results showed that real-time visual feedback had a significant effect on MRD of the SEBT in the posterolateral direction (P <0.001). There was a non-significant increase in MRD in the anterior and posteromedial directions. This indicates that real-time visual feedback appears to be an effective means for improving the performance of the SEBT in the posterolateral direction, and may be a promising tool for clinical rehabilitation and athlete training to enhance dynamic postural control.
