Abstract

The eye allows encoding and receiving information about movement: it also allows knowing the environment, including space and three-dimensional parameters: therefore it plays a key role in posture. Thus, there is a strong connection between the latter, the visual system and movement. Therefore, the aim of this study was to highlight, through electronic stabilometry in static mode, a correlation, whether or not statistically significant, of any possibility of influencing in an immediate manner the proprioceptive reflexes that link an athlete's extrinsic eye muscles and posture. Methods The study was conducted on 18 female volleyball athletes. These were subjected to a Lang test of dominant eye and of hypo-convergence. Then to a stabilometric measurement in upright stance with open and closed eyes both in the cabin and in the open field. After that, to exercises of evocation of the convergence reflexes at close range, with the use of a micro-magnet, and from a distance, using a stereo trainer device. We eventually proceeded to a comparison between the stabilometric recordings in the cabin and in the open field. Results There were no statistically significant differences between recordings in the cabin and in the open field. The difference is statistically significant (p<.001), however, on behalf of the condition in the open field in the length parameter, which indicates a greater stability of athletes. Discussion. The sporting gesture is mostly influenced by the Tonic Postural System, although there are many other factors that contribute to its success. The data confirm that the volleyball athletes are accustomed to an assessment of their surroundings and have a good stability due to the frequent handling of balance or unsteady conditions.
