Table 4 Mean values for the anteroposterior (σ Apr), mediolateral (σ Latr) and total (σ r) stability parameters for open and closed eyes and the three ankle brace conditions (N = 33)

From: The effect of different skin-ankle brace application pressures on quiet single-limb balance and electromyographic activation onset of lower limb muscles
