Postural control has been defined as the ability to maintain, achieve or restore a state of balance during any posture or activity. Appropriate postural control is an absolute pre-requisite for activities of daily living and requires several different motor skills to be effective. To maintain a stable upright stance, with adaptive strategies for orientation and balance, information processed through the somatosensory (70%), visual (10%) and vestibular (20%) systems needs to be integrated and a complex interplay between sensory and motor systems is required in order to control the multisegmental body system and interlimb coupling.
