Résumé : Patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) may demonstrate cognitive function and balance deterioration. These two phenomena are often realized simultaneously during daily living activities, where the risk of falling may be increased due to possible postural disturbance when focusing on a cognitive task during motion. Despite the high rate of falls in COPD, there is currently a lack of affordable clinical instruments to quantify the interaction between cognitive tasks and static balance in these patients. Therefore, this study aims to assess the balance perturbation induced by cognitive tasks using a new cost-effective protocol which can easily be implemented in clinical settings.
