Summary

Research Details
  • The principle aim of this study is to determine whether ankle taping improves dynamic ankle proprioception in healthy subjects using the Biodex stability system.
Phase
Not Specified
Study Design
Randomised controlled trial
Study Type
Interventional
Intervention

The proposed study will be a repeated measures design. The participants will be tested as both members of control and test groups.
The participants will be consented to the study and randomly allocated to either control or test trial. After initial one-off testing they will then return at a later date and be tested as a member of the other group. Blinding the participants is not possible as both subject and assessor will be aware of the use of tape. Testing will take place on the dominant leg.
The Biodex stability system is a computerised force platform. It challenges an individual to maintain balance whilst standing on a moveable platform that tilts in all planes. The difficulty of the test is controlled electronically. Visual feedback is provided via a computer screen and a report is generated. Testing within the study will take place at two levels (one easy and one hard). Each test at each level will last for twenty seconds with two practice tests to negate learning effects.

For the test group:
Initially ankle joint range of movement will be measured and Biodex testing will take place. The dominant ankle will then be taped, followed by further measurement of ankle range of movement and Biodex testing. The participants will then undergo twenty minutes of balance exercise followed by a final measurement of ankle joint range of movement and Biodex testing.

For the control group:
Initially ankle joint range of movement will be measured and Biodex testing will take place. The participants will then rest for twenty minutes followed by further measurement of ankle range of movement and Biodex testing. The participants will then undergo twenty minutes of balance exercise followed by a final measurement of ankle joint range of movement and Biodex testing.
