Variations in plantar pressure and balance in HIV-infected children in antiretroviral therapy

Abstract: Balance disorders have been poorly investigated and somewhat neglected in people infected with the human immunodeficiency virus, especially in children, whose have intrinsic and extrinsic risk factors that may compromise the balance. To evaluate the foot plantar pressures and the balance in children with acquired immunodeficiency. We recruited 53 children aged between 6 and 15 years: 33 healthy children, and 20 children with positive serology for the human immunodeficiency virus. A physical examination include… Show more

“…Balance control depends mainly on three elements: visual, vestibular and proprioceptive, which must be integrated and combined with motor and cognitive systems to maintain body stability ( Kilby et al, 2017 ; Takeda et al, 2017 ; da Silva Pontes et al, 2019 ). In a normal person standing with EO, proprioceptive input from the lower limbs and visual input play a key role in balance regulation; when the eyes are closed, the vestibular system replaces the visual input by knowing the position and movement of the head to make appropriate adjustments in each body part to maintain body balance ( Dos Anjos et al, 2016 ; Kim et al, 2018 ).…”
