Abstract

INTRODUCTION: Functional ankle instability (FAI) is defined as the subjective sensation of giving way or feeling joint instability after repeated episodes of ankle sprain (Riemann et al., 2003). The purpose of this study was to examine the effect of 12-week Biomechanical Ankle Platform System (BAPS) training on ankle reposition sense in subjects with unilateral FAI.
