CORELLATION THE BODY WEIGHT TO SELECTED STABILOMETRIC PARAMETERS
Mass is an important factor that has an influence on the stability of the human body. The hypothesis is the higher the mass, the higher the stability. The proportionality of the human body when considering body mass and physical height are expressed by the BMI (body mass index). Our goal was to verify a correlation between BMI and postural stability with the use of stabilometry tests on baropodometric platforms to confirm or refute the mentioned hypothesis. A total of 184 healthy subjects (73 females and 111 male) participated in the measurement and performed a bipedal test with their eyes open and closed, where the evaluated parameters were the confidence ellipse area and the length of the oscillation. After a statistical assessment of the measurements, we can confirm that having the eyes open or closed has an influence on the confidence ellipse area and the length of oscillation. The measured values show that the confidence ellipse area and the length of oscillation are not dependent on the BMI.
