Pluchino A et al. – The video game balance board program, which can be performed at home, was as effective as Tai Chi and the standard balance exercise program in improving postural control and balance dictated by the force plate postural sway and dynamic posturography (DP) measures. This finding may have implications for exercise adherence because the at–home nature of the intervention eliminates many obstacles to exercise training.
