原始语种摘要: Abstract(#br)Objective(#br)People with epilepsy (PWE) exercise less than the general population and describe a lower level of fitness. Exercise improves comorbidities associated with epilepsy and may help seizure control. We aimed to record balance and reaction time in patients undergoing antiseizure drug (ASD) taper in the epilepsy monitoring unit (EMU) to determine if there is a reversible, dose-dependent effect of these medications.(#br)Methods(#br)We tested 21 patients and 21 controls using a Wii Balance Board (WBB) and online reaction time test. The patients were recruited during an EMU stay and were tested before and after medication taper. Drug levels were also checked. Sway from center of pressure (COP) and speed of sway were tested with eyes open on two legs, eyes closed on two...
