Abstract

INTRODUCTION: As one of the research on the balance control of hand stand, frequency analysis on center of mass (COM) during hand stand indicated the greatest power spectrum existed below 1Hz (Clement and Rezette, 1985). This study focused on the balance control by means of frequency analysis in COM as well as center of pressure (COP) fluctuations in the A-P direction during 10s sustained hand stand movement.
