The SP3D assess sensory modulation by rating three atypical behavioral response patterns that may occur during the administration of subtests in the visual, auditory, tactile, proprioceptive, and vestibular domains.
Furthermore, proprioceptive patterns train the reader across Romola in new ways of reading for the body--and thinking--in literature.
The second limitation was the lack of an evaluation of the effects of vestibular, visual and proprioceptive sensory inputs.
Taking into consideration the scientific evidence in the current literature, the main hypothesis of this study was that the concurrent application of neuromuscular taping combined with proprioceptive exercise - based protocols ("Taping Elastico Chinesiologico", T.E.CH.

Postural stability is an important aspect of functional outcome after TKA, and balance problems may develop in TKA patients after surgery due to the losses in to proprioceptive sensation caused by excision of the knee cruciate ligament, weakness of knee flexors and extensors, limitation of knee flexion (14).
In addition to the symptoms of cerebellar atrophy, bilateral vestibular deficit, and neuropathy (mainly sensitive, particularly proprioceptive, and absence of deep tendon reflexes), the presence of autonomic neuropathy (postural hypotension, sweating, etc.) has been described in 91% of the patients with CANVAS [4].
Improvement in proprioception in sports injuries and back pain has been used as one criterion for treatment success and proprioceptive rehabilitation in musculoskeletal complaints has been concerned with protecting the affected joint from future injury, while maximizing a return to normal function.
The principle of proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation (PNF) was built on Neuromuscular Mechanization (Facilitation Inhibition, Muscular Resistance, Irradiation, Successful Induction Reflexes.
In the second window, no visual feedback is given: the PC monitor is turned off and the subject uses only the proprioceptive information to maintain the force level output constant.
