  • Using the Wii is great for balancing exercises. :) - 9/29/2012 7:34:20 PM
  • I am told it is the norm for one side to be stronger and more well balanced that the other. It's good to find something that I am normal in. lol I have been working on balance in some of the classes offered at the gym and am hoping that my yoga classes will also be helpful with this. It is amazing when you find out just how unstable you really are. - 9/8/2012 11:58:22 PM
  • Doing the elliptical without hands on has improved my balance. For me, not easy,getting better. - 8/19/2012 3:19:42 PM
  • EXCELLENT!! I am legally deaf and fight with balance issues on a daily basis. Sometimes, I lose my balance and I am pretty good at defying gravity and not fall. But, I have been concerned that when I get up in to my 50's and beyond, that I would not be so lucky. Now, I know I have a weapon to use to help me get my confidence back that being deaf is only a challenge not a threat!! Thank you so much for this gave me much needed hope and confidence for my future!! :-)

  • just what i needed i have sprained my ankle twice this spring/ summer and needed some thing like this build up the strength in the ankle. the ankle is weak since i broke the same foot twice once in 1999 and again in 2001 once slipping on ice and the second time training for a race. so i gave up running and walk now but these will help strengthen my ankle and help with balance. - 8/16/2012 1:38:02 PM

  • I am positive that being deaf affects your balance. Unfortunately, I cannot give you a citation to prove that. Have you looked at deaf advocacy websites? Some are better than others, I'm sure, but there must be some good information out there! - 3/2/2010 4:41:12 PM
  • I don't know if I will get my answer but I have to ask this question. I am deaf and sometime I have to careful with my balance. After read this article, I wonder how much being deaf really affect the balance. Do you know where I can find this answer? - 12/28/2009 8:15:42 PM
    My best tip is to do the test. I didn't realize how as we get older the balance mechanism also needs to be worked on. as a young man I was always good when it came to balance but after doing the test I struggled, so I will be modifying my workout to put this right. - 10/18/2009 4:00:57 AM
