Adaptation d'un dispositif d'évaluation du contrôle postural des segments axiaux à une population pédiatrique

Abstract : The axial segments, including the trunk, are predominant in maintaining balance for many motor activities. For ten years, unstable sitting devices, enabling the assessment of postural control of axial segments for pathological populations have been developped. To our knowledge, none of these devices have been used in children. The purpose of this study was to adapt to children an unstable sitting device already validated in adults. Two groups (children and adults) participated in two experiments: the first was to check whether if it is possible to normalize the conditions of instability compared with anthropometric data of the subjects. The second was to explore the possibilities of incrementing the difficulty of the stabilization task and eventually to determine an optimum level of difficulty for assessing control of axial segments in children. The results show a strong relationship between the difficulty and weight of subjects. Also, the incrementation of the difficulty is not only possible, but may also be controlled to be specific to each subject bodymass. The device tested in this study provides an assessment of postural control of axial segments in children, as well as adaptations to the characteristics of the subjects.
