Brief Summary:
This study determines the effects of posture on time up and go test. Half of the subjects will assume a high-power posture, while the other half will assume a low-power posture.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Healthy Volunteers Other: high-power Other: low-power Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
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 in the control group were instructed to stand with hands and arms wrapping around the torso and feet together for 20 seconds. Timed Up and Go test was administered using an OmniVR™ Virtual Rehabilitation System before and after the postural intervention

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Dominant
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.
Other: high-power
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.
Other: low-power
Subjects will stand with hands and arms wrapping around the torso and feet together (low-power) for 20 seconds.




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. 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.
