Commands that control the coordination Posture and Gait can either be considered a separate part of the neurological exam or a subtest of the coordination exam that addresses walking and balance Testing posture and gait addresses functions of the spin cerebellum and the vestibulocerebellum because both are part of these activities A subtest called station begins with the patient standing in a normal position to check for the placement of the feet and balance The patient is asked to hop on one foot to assess the ability to maintain balance and posture during movement Though the station subtest appears to be similar to the Romberg test the difference is that the patient’s eyes are open during station.
