Romberg Test: Sensitivity and Specificity

Introduction: None written. Excerpt from the entry in Diabetic Neuropathy:
Romberg testing was performed by having

the subject stand with the feet close together but not

touching. Initially, the subjects stood with eyes open for about

10 seconds; subjects then closed their eyes. The ability to stand

without opening the eyes or taking a step for 30 seconds was

considered a negative or normal test.
