Ankle joint proprioception has a special clinical interest because its decrease is linked to ankle sprain (20) and it is critical to the functional success of surgical and rehabilitation treatments (22).
suggested, by means of vibration perturbation, that their older participants increased the weight of the ankle joint proprioception in postural regulation because of a decrease in the sensitivity of paraspinal muscle spindles or changes in the central processing of this afferent information [5].

The measures used were: (a) edge contrast sensitivity, which requires identification of the orientation of a line separating two semicircles of differing contrast; (b) hand reaction time using a computer mouse or button press system; (c) knee joint proprioception using a joint matching test; (d) a lower limb (maximal quadriceps) strength test; and (e) postural sway when standing on foam (32).
