Abstract

Relationships between joint position sense and the sensorimotor characteristics such as joint stiffness, time to detect motion, and time to peak torque during a perturbation test have rarely been investigated due to methodological challenges. The purpose of this study was to compare joint position sense and the sensorimotor characteristics in healthy individuals.
