Postural Responses to a Moving Room in Children with and without Developmental Coordination Disorder
Chung, Hyun Chae; Stoffregen, Thomas A.
Research in Developmental Disabilities: A Multidisciplinary Journal, v32 n6 p2571-2576 Nov-Dec 2011
Children (10 or 11 years old) with and without developmental coordination disorder (DCD) were exposed to imposed optic flow in a moving room. We manipulated the amplitude and frequency of oscillatory room motion, and we evaluated the coupling of standing body sway with room oscillations. The results revealed that standing sway of both children with and without DCD was influenced by room motion. However, children with DCD responded differently than children without DCD to specific combinations of room motion amplitude and frequency. We conclude that DCD can influence a child's use of imposed optic flow for postural control and that these effects are situation-specific rather than being systemic. (Contains 2 figures and 1 table.)
