Aim: Given the correlation between the frequency of falls and excessive trunk sway, this study investigated whether training with real-time prosthetic biofeedback (BF) of trunk sway induces a carry-over improvement in balance control once BF is removed. Methods: 12 healthy older adults and 8 chr[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
