||Postural stability of workers exposed to lead
||Nov. 1994, Vol.51, No.11, p.768-771. 20 ref.
||Postural stability was investigated with a computerized postural sway measurement system in 60 workers exposed to lead with a duration of exposure of 84 months and in 60 controls. The results show that workers exposed to lead had significantly poorer postural stability than the controls. Lead may affect certain parts of the whole sensory neural axis, resulting in postural instability when the visual input is cut off.
