Abstract: This is a cross-sectional study for seated postural control in spinal cord injury. The general goal of the present study was to further understand seated postural control of individuals with SCI in various di erent conditions (e.g. manipulations of vision, proprioception, and task constraints). The overall purpose was to test the predictions of the loss of complexity hypothesis and the loss of adaptability hypothesis on seated postural control of persons with and without SCI. The general hypothesis was that seated postural control of individuals with SCI would be in uenced by SCI injury level, sensory information (vision and proprioception) and task constraints. Three experiments were conducted to test the hypothesis. These experiments consisted of a series of manipulations of a sensory information (proprioception) and task demands. The results of the present research project leads
