Postural Control Laboratory
The Postural Control Laboratory develops evidence-based
interventions designed to improve postural control in the elderly
(pre-frail, non-frail and visually impaired). The lab is dedicated to
the study of geriatric syndromes and their impact on fall risk.
Specifically, the research being conducted in the lab is committed to
developing more sensitive predictors of falls by employing increased
cognitive and environmental load computerized dynamic posturography
testing and evaluating the impact of treatments on older adults
capacity to withstand these increased load conditions.
