Author(s): Tulu Biswas and Dr. Rajarshi Kar
The aim of the study was to assess static and dynamic balance in children age 5 – 12 years. A cross sectional study was used to compare children among the age groups of 5 – 6 years, 7 – 8 years, 9 -10 years, and 11 - 12 years. Data was collected from children of Alipur Multipurpose Govt. Girls' School who were tested on static and dynamic balance. Stork test was used to measure static balance and four square step test was used to measure dynamic balance. The result indicated that the static & dynamic balance ability improves as with age and after 7-8 years there is a sharp increase in both static & dynamic balance.
