PMID:  2754159     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
In 39 healthy active people aged 17 to 79 who had not fallen, anteroposterior sway during quiet standing increased slightly with age; there was no increase with age in lateral sway. Sway increased on deprivation of visual information and altered proprioception due to foot pressure sensory change in all age groups, and especially when both forms of sensation were altered concurrently; but the increase of sway on pressure sensory change was no greater in the older than in the younger subjects.
