The purpose of the study was to evaluate response of stability and postural control in patients suffering from multiple sclerosis. Thirty subjects, of both sexes ,their age ranged from 30 to 40 years shared in this study and were divided into two equal groups, the first group (GI) included normal subjects and the second group (GII) included patients suffering from multiple sclerosis. Assessment was done by Biodex balance system via the dynamic balance test which included anteroposterior, mediolatoral and overall stability index. This study was done in Biomechanics lab in Faculty of Physical Education at Kafrelsheikh University. Group II was trained for two months. The results revealed that there were slightly decrease in balance paremeters in the control group or normal subjects during assessment of balance in this study. In relation to the study group, there were no significant difference between the balance parameters post treatment than pre treatment (p >0.05), this indicates that there was no improvement in balance in GII after receiving the balance training program. It could be concluded that performing balance training program did not improve balance in subjects suffering from multiple sclerosis.

Aim: The hormonal, physiological and anatomical changes throughout pregnancy affect the musculoskeletal system that lead to postural instability which may impair their lifestyles and increased risk of collapses. This study was aimed to assess postural balance in females during the second and third trimester of pregnancy. Study Design: A case control study. Place and Duration of Study: Biomechanics lab. IN Faculty of Physical Education at Kafrelsheikh University, between February and July 2015. Methodology: In this study, postural stability throughout the second and third trimester was measured using the Biodex Balance System (BBS) in 14 pregnant females (age range 25-30 years). The overall (OA), anterior-posterior (AP) and medial-lateral (ML) stability index scores were obtained at level 8 and 7. Results: The mean OA, AP and ML scores were significantly higher in the third trimester compared to second trimester (P <.05). There was no significant difference in the ML between the stability level 8 and 7 (P >.05) during the second or third trimester. Conclusion: Pregnant females have poor postural stability as well as decreased postural equilibrium in the third trimester compared with the second trimester of pregnancy.
