Abstract:

The aim of this study is to point out the influence of the feet position on the mean center of pressure COP position on a population of 25 healthy young right-handed men. Results have been compared to those of the literature. Most of them have been confirmed mean COP position is on the subjects right side, that points out the asymmetry of the orthostatic posture. Moreover, the findings showed the feet position effects when the clearance andor the angle between the feet increase the mean COP moves backward and to the right.
