About this Research Topic
This Research Topic will focus on the recent research and developments in balance-controlling mechanisms and fall-prevention strategies. With the recent advancement and development in the field, scholars have applied several state-of-the-art technologies to study human beings’ balance-controlling mechanism and fall-prevention strategy, from external body movement to internal physiological response, from indoor settings to outdoor environments, and from bench experiments to clinical application. A number of fall-prevention approaches and programs have also been developed, evaluated, and validated in various populations.
This Research Topic welcomes contributions (Original Article, Short Communication, and Review) mainly focused on the following topics:
- Neuromusculoskeletal mechanism of balance-control and falls
- Physiological mechanism of balance-control and falls
- Biomechanical mechanism of balance-control and falls
- State-of-the-art approaches and research in fall-prevention
- Artificial intelligence in studying the balance-controlling mechanism and the developing fall-prevention strategy
Keywords: Balance and Gait, Falls, Aging, Rehabilitation, Neuromusculoskeletal Disorder (MSD), Active Health, Assistive Technologies
Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
