A balancing technique for people with special needs

Press/Media: Research

Description

Researchers from the Division for Physical Education of Tomsk Polytechnic University are working on developing equilibrium skills on slippery surfaces for people with disabilities. This technique can help disabled people to move more steadily along the streets in winter. The researchers propose to change a conventional approach, i.e. to train disabled people to maintain balance and walk like common people, and to develop those specific mechanisms which their bodies have already developed.
