Abstract

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the reliability of time to stabilization in single leg standing. Time to Stabilization (TTS) is a measurement which can be used to analyze both static and dynamic stability of an individual. Twenty seven college students participated in this study. All the subjects were asked to perform a single leg standing task on the force platform placed on the floor. Five trials were performed by each subject to estimate the reliability of TTS. TTS was calculated as the time taken to reach body weight and stay within 5% of the body weight for one second. The results showed that the reliability was optimal with moderate correlation for the first two trials.
