About

The objective of this study is to determine the effects on balance and postural control produced by the implementation of a training program that includes work with unstable surfaces in its methods. It also seeks to quantify to what extent the benefits exceed those achieved with a training of similar characteristics, but implemented on a stable surface. An intensive program is proposed, whose target population is young adults.
