Abstract

Stabilometry is an electronic system device that measures and studies the movements of a person in a standing position, to lead it back to stability (anti-fall). In 1985, the Association Française de Posturologie - AFP published the rules for some postural parameters obtained from a standardized platform (Normes 85-AFP, 1986). Whereas before, with the rules AFP 85, the detection of the postural parameters was performed in the laboratory, inside a cabin, isolating the person from the surrounding environment, starting from our work, the measurements are performed in a clinical setting rather than in a research lab, in a cohort of patients, rather than in volunteers, and conducted in an open environment (open field), always following the same criteria (normal brightness, absence of visual or auditory stimuli, positioning of the feet at 30 degrees, on a new platform that allows the 40 Hz registration, with feet apart, and separated forefoot from the heel, in static mode, open/closed eyes, during 51.2 sec). In this study all postural parameters were recorded in enrolled subjects divided by gender and and age in order to get new clinical guidelines for all stabilometric parameters and then very significant values of statistacal normality . Postural parameters allow us to diagnose the causes of postural imbalance. All stabilometric measurements were carried out by the same M.D. in static condition ,in the same clinical environmental conditions, observing criteria of inclusion and exclusion, in 3972 subjects aged from 5 to 87, both with open and closed eyes using the Cyber Sabots equipment (standardized platform with separated feet and detections for forefoot and rearfoot with a sampling frequency of 40 Hz). The results were subjected to independent statistical analysis at ILEPS University, to have objectivity and methodological rigor , grouping subjects by gender and age.
