Balance Disorders in People with History of COVID-19 in Light of Posturographic Tests.

Publication date: Jul 03, 2023

Coronavirus disease-19 (COVID-19), resulting from infection with the SARS-CoV-2 virus, causes not only flu-like symptoms, such as fever, aches, or a dry cough, but also affects the sensory system, leading to a loss of smell and taste or to neurological deficits in the shape of balance disorders and dizziness. Our research aimed to assess the prevalence of balance disorders in patients who had suffered COVID-19. The study group consisted of 73 subjects with a history of SARS-CoV-2 infection. The control group consisted of 50 healthy people with similar demographics. A balance analysis was performed on a tensometric platform, using the Romberg test. Statistically significant differences between the results of the study group and the control group were obtained in the evaluation of the length of body sways and the area of gravity center, both with open and closed eyes, and in the case of maximum body sways with open eyes. Patients who have suffered COVID-19 may suffer from balance disorders detectable by posturographic tests.
