GATICA R, Valeska; ELGUETA C, Edith  y  VALDES M, Ramón. Effects of Sensory Stimuli on Postural Control: a Tetraplegic Case Report. Int. J. Morphol. [online]. 2008, vol.26, n.4, pp. 809-812. ISSN 0717-9502.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-95022008000400004.

During sessions of physical therapy, a tetraplegic patient with incomplete spinal cord section at C5 level was found to have changes in the posture post intervention. The therapy consisted of tactile stimulation in specific points of his body to genérate reflex patterns of muscle activation (Vojta therapy principies). To quantify these postural changes in the subject, the center of pressure displacement in sitting posture was measured. An analysis of the changes observed in postural control through fourteen months of follow-up is presented and discussed in the report bellow.

Palabras llave : Specific manual press stimulus (SMPS); Static posturographic platform; Postural control.
