Abstract

INTRODUCTION: The ability to maintain balance and static-kinetic stability is particularly important for athletes. The balance function realizes a stable connection between the individual and the environment, resulting in “spatial” stabilization. This means that the environment is perceived as “stable,” that man lives, moves or stays in a stable surrounding. That is why this fact is of particular importance in the training process of figure skaters, gymnasts and other athletes. Different tests are made for their selection and for assessment of the training process. This paper presents a method for computer processing of results from craniocorporographic examinations (CCG) of athletes at standard and sensitized Romberg’s standing test and Unterberger-Fukuda stepping test. The aim is to compare the sensitivity and reliability of those tests.
