Table 5 Statistical outcomes of integrated EMG during dynamic balance test in compression garment conditions. P-values of planned comparison between control socks condition and each compression garment conditions at eight directions of perturbation. TA- tibialis anterior; PL-peroneal logus; MG- medial gastrocnemius. * p ≤ 0.05

From: Compression socks enhance sensory feedback to improve standing balance reactions and reflex control of walking
