Abstract

Standing balance is imperative for mobility and avoiding falls. Use of an excessive number of standing balance measures has limited the synthesis of balance intervention data and hampered consistent clinical practice. The aim of this study was to develop recommendations for a core outcome set (COS) of standing balance measures for research and practice among adults.
