Question Text

I would now like to assess your balance and co-ordination. First, I will ask you to fold your arms and, after I count up to three, stand on your preferred leg, and raise your other foot off the floor like this (nurse demonstrate). I will ask you to hold this position for as long as you can or until I tell you to stop. Then I want you to repeat the test with your eyes closed. Would you be willing to have a go?
