Asmita Karajgi, Poonam Koushik, Sujata Yardi

Independent elder in the community is the need of the time.Dynamic sitting balance is crucial for activities of daily living like bathing, dressing etc.However there is limited evidence on sitting balance in the older adults.The Objective of our study was to explore the effect of aging on Sitting Limits of Stability. 30 old and 30 young adults participated in the study. Excursion of centre of pressure in sitting limits of Stability was assessed using forceplates and compared between the two groups. Statistical significant difference was seen in composite values of all the parameters viz.reaction time, movement velocity, end point excursion, directional control and maximum excursion between young and old adults. Results are suggestive of affection of sitting Limits of stability in the older adults.

Keywords: old adults, sitting balance, limits of stability, movement control
