Abstract: Objective me asurements of postural control are frequently used to examine the causes of, features associated with, and therapeutic interventions for ankle instability. However, researchers have typically used single-session measures to represent postural control at one point in time. Recent studies in a healthy elderly population demonstrate significant variations in day-to-day postural control and suggest that single-session measurement may not truly reflect postural control capabilities. An investigation into patterns of day-to-day variation in postural control in a younger population are warranted.
