    Abstract

    Balance system is one of important body system that enables us to perform our daily activities such as walking, running and standing without any difficulties. Gans Sensory Organization Performance (SOP) Test is one of the simple and cost-effective tools to evaluate the body balance status. In this test, there are seven conditions that are important for the evaluation of the ability to utilize and integrate sensory input for postural control. This preliminary study was performed to determine the normative value for Gans Sensory Organization Performance Test using Bal Ex Foam among normal adult. We recruited 47 normal subjects among health sciences student and staff. All subjects completed the MVSS questionnaire and GAN SOP test using BAL EX foam. Assessment of starting time of swaying and degree of swaying in condition 1 to condition 6. In condition 7, the participants will be assessed only in the degree of swaying. Statistical analysis showed no significant difference in age, gender, weight and height with the results of starting time of swaying and degree of swaying in condition 1 to condition 6. Besides, there is also no relationship between age, weight, and height with the degree of swaying in condition 7. Hence, this test can be used in clinical setting regardless of age, gender, weight, and height. The results also showed there is no relationship between age, gender, weight, and height with starting time of swaying and degree of swaying when standing on BAL EX Foam with eyes closed. In conclusion, BAL EX Foam is one of an alternative foam since it shows no effect in term of different age, weight, height, and gender
