A Pilot Study in Order to Examine the Relationship between the Degree of Visual Impairment of Patient and His Postural Stability

Open access


The main aim of the pilot study was to evaluate the relationship between degree of visual impairment of patient and his postural stability. The article contains basic explanation and requirements for stabilography research. The paper also describes statistic analysis of influence of visual impairment on postural stability opposed to control group (people perfectly sighted). These results allowed us to verify the approved research plan.
