Abstract

Movement and participation in context requires successful processing of information from multiple sensory sources. The vestibular, somatosensory, and visual systems contribute to postural control through perception and responses to these cues.1 Postural control is essential to an individual’s participation in daily occupations. Postural control is the ability to control one’s center of mass over the base of support.
