Abstract Objective: To consider the relationship between hip muscles strength, anthropometric characteristics and range of mo- tion (ROM) with Star Excursion Balance Test (SEBT), a test of dynamic postural control. Methods: Forty seven persons (23 male, 24 female) volunteered for this study. Maximal Voluntary Contraction (MVC) of hip muscles measured by Manual Muscle Test (MMT). Participants performed 3 trials of the SEBT in each of the 8 directions. Results: No statistically significant relationship were found between ROM with execution distances (P > 0.05). Significant correlations were revealed between height and excursion distance and leg length and excursion distance with leg length having the stronger correlation (P ≤ 0.05). Significant differences were found between excursion distances and hip muscle strength (P ≤ 0.05). Male had significantly greater excursion distances than female participants in posteriomedial, posterior and medial directions (P ≤ 0.006). However, after normalizing excursion distances to leg length, there were no significant differences related to gender. Conclusion: In conclusion, when using the SEBT for assessment balance, participants’ execution distances should be normalized to leg length and lower extremity strength to diminish individual and gender differences. The relationship between star excursion... (PDF Download Available).
