Body balance can be examined by using a stabilometer. This device is very useful to record and estimate balance disorders. It was studied in this paper which factors of the stabilogram are the most reliable to show imbalance.<BR>1. The patterns of the stabilogram are not stable. In the first and second examinations, the stabilogram showed different patterns.<BR>2. The total length of the stabilogram showed disequilibrium quantitatively. The total length of the stabilogram became shorter by repeated examinations, and became longer by focusing their strengh on their feet, or body while examinations.<BR>3. The center of the stabilogram showed the side of lesions by deviating to the lesion side.<BR>4. Examination using a stabilometer is very useful for observing, treating, or estimating imbalance.
