Research Project on Ageing’s Effect on Balance


Are you healthy and aged over 60? We are seeking volunteers to take part in a study investigating the effect of age on balance control.

We are looking for healthy adults with 60+ yrs without known neurological disease including seizures, migraine or fainting; uncorrected visual impairment or joint replacement.

The purpose of the study is to know the role of vision and attentional demands in balance control.

Participants will be measured balance before and after standing on a vibrating platform or with and without noise background.

We will reimburse your travel expense to King’s College London.

The study will be conducted at Shepherd House, Guy’s Campus near London Bridge station, for about 1.5 hours.
