Abstract
Background: Balance skills play an axial and vital role in enjoying good physical health. Static balance skills like standing on one leg are necessary for activity of daily living. Standing on one leg is a readily simple test used for assessment of static balance across different ages
Objectives - The aims of this study was to 1) compare the static balance ability when changing the hands position and 2) compare static balance ability when having eyes open versus closed
Methods and Materials Thirty three college students instructed to maintain balance as long as tolerated while standing on one leg. The order of measurement; for hands on chest, hands on pelvis, and hands dangled, was randomized. Open versus closed eyes tested from hands on pelvis position.
Results: The mean score, in seconds, for standing on right leg with hands dangled was 74.00 (SD=41.43), with hands on pelvis was 75.75 (SD=44.20), and with hands on chest was 82.09 (SD=37.95). One-way repeated-measure ANOVA showed significant effect [ F(2,64)=3.06, P<0.05]. Paired sample t test showed a significant increase in balance timing from eye closed to eye open test [t (32) = 5.99, p <0.001]
Conclusions: Individuals were able to balance on one leg longer when they had hands on chest. Clinicians can incorporate the hands positions and visual feedback as a simple way of clinical progression in their rehabilitation program.

Key words: Balance, posture, physical endurance, healthy participants, visual feedback
