Subjects in the experimental group were instructed to stand with hands on their hips, elbows pointing out and feet approximately one foot apart for 20 seconds.
Subjects will stand with hands on their hips, elbows pointing out and feet approximately one foot apart (high-power) for 20 seconds.
Active Comparator: Submissive
Subjects in the control group were instructed to stand with hands and arms wrapping around the torso and feet together for 20 seconds.
Subjects will stand with hands and arms wrapping around the torso and feet together (low-power) for 20 seconds.
- Timed up and go Test [ Time Frame: Up to 3 minutes during each Timed up and go Test. Twice (pre and post the postural intention) at the same session (day). ]
Patients wear their regular footwear and can use a walking aid if needed. Begin by having the patient sit back in a standard arm chair and identify a line 3 meters or 10 feet away on the floor. The timed up and go test measures the amount of time, in seconds, that it takes to stand from a chair, walk 3 meters, turn around and walk back to the chair, and sit down again.
A change between pre and post postural intervention is reported. The time point for pre intervention is at baseline. The time point for post intervention is immediately after the intervention.
