Abstract [en]

Twenty-eight patients with polyneuropathy aged 49-82 years (mean 67 years) were assessed by dynamic posturography. The patient group was compared to a control group comprising 29 healthy controls aged 70 through 75 years (mean 73 years). The dynamic posturography method comprises a sensory organization part in which the platform and visual surround are either stable or referenced to the patient's sway; furthermore, the eyes are open or closed. In a movement coordination part the platform makes active movements. In the sensory organization part of the dynamic posturography the patient group showed significantly lower equilibrium performance compared to the control group in the test conditions with absent vision, sway-referenced surrounding, and, finally, sway referenced platform and surrounding. In these conditions the influx of somatosensory information is of paramount importance for stable posture. In the movement coordination test, the patient group showed prolonged muscular response latencies in both forward and backward platform perturbations compared to the control group. It is concluded that dynamic posturography is a valuable diagnostic tool in assessment of the dynamic equilibrium performance in patients with polyneuropathy.
