    kinematics of hip and pelvis joints. The ADIM, a neuromuscular control exercise, increases function of the TrA and internal oblique (IO) to create improved trunk stability. The objective “was to examine the influence of the ADIM on forward steps as a gait exercise.” A convenience sample of 20 healthy male volunteers from a university was obtained. At the time of testing, these participants did not have any known lower back pain or neuromuscular disease.

    2(1), 311-316, February (2015) ISSN: 2348 - 8336 ABSTRACT Background: Mobility impairments seen after Stroke impact walking speed, endurance and balance. Almost all the individuals with Stroke have fear of fall. The physical impairments in balance and gait along with individual’s perception about his/her own abilities to maintain balance might have an impact on level of activity and participation in the community. The association of these variables with recovery of Stroke has been well studied. However

Previous studies also incorporated common clinical assessments (e.g., Berg Balance Scale, Timed up and Go test, Functional Gait Assessment) to evaluate the effects of biofeedback system on user’s balance and gait [Lipsitz et. al., 2015]. For example, Berg Balance Scale examines an individual’s ability of quiet standing, turning, single-leg standing, making transitions between sitting and standing, and transferring between

Richardson (2004) stated that gait and stability are of interest because a large number of falls in elderly population with and without DN occur during locomotion, which inturn affects their daily living. Speed, frontal plane control, and load distributions of the feet are connected to these changes in balance and gait impairments, which generate the increased risk of falls in elderly
