proprioceptive

pertaining to the sensations of body movements and awareness of posture, enabling the body to orient itself in space without visual clues.

Proprioceptive

Pertaining to proprioception, or the awareness of posture, movement, and changes in equilibrium and the knowledge of position, weight, and resistance of objects as they relate to the body.

proprioceptive (prō´preōsep´tiv),

adj describes the body's ability to sense the movement and position of muscles without visual guides. It is essential for any activity requiring hand-eye coordination.

proprioceptive

pertaining to or emanating from proprioceptor.

proprioceptive deficit
a defect of proprioception in which the animal acts as though it does not know where its feet are (in contrast to a cerebellar defect when the feet do not end up where the animal appears to intend that they should go).
proprioceptive positioning
positioning of the limbs or head and neck in response to proprioceptive inputs. The basis of postural reflexes.
proprioceptive reflex
a reflex that is initiated by stimuli arising from some function of the reflex mechanism itself.

Conclusion: The rTMS and BMT approaches that were implemented in the study affected the proprioceptive sense of the wrist after the treatment and in the early period but did not change spasticity.
65,66) There is a growing accumulation of evidence to suggest that brain-held models of the body, broadly termed "cortical proprioceptive representations" or "proprioceptive neurotags," are inaccurate in those with persistent or recurrent pain.
Thus, while uncommon, proprioceptive loss has been well documented with the help of electrophysiology, pathology and MRI imaging in literature.
In light of this, the aim of this study is to compare auditory, proprioceptive, and total vocal symptoms in patients with dysphonia, pre--and post--group therapy, and to associate the number of vocal symptoms to the gender, age, professional use of voice, and laryngeal diagnosis variables.
Also, another explanation of more common accidents in women is the deficit of proprioceptive sense which can lead to a low control in extremities, which causes genu valgum and thus the increased pressure on the knee ligaments.
2) Therefore measurement of JPS or kinesthesia alone is not necessarily the right approach to reveal a neurological defect after joint injury, (7) hence a more functional test like postural sway (The degree of sway measured by Balance Index) which is measured by kinesthetic ability trainer is of more use functionally for the assessment of proprioceptive function.
Therefore, the aim of this investigation was to explore the differences in muscle latency and proprioceptive ability between the non-dominant and dominant ankles of healthy sedentary individuals.
Conclusion: Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation technique was an effective method in terms of pain relief stiffness reduction and functional improvement.
