The purpose of the study is to assess the relationship between body posture and dynamic balance in adults with childhood-onset asthma and compare them to a non-asthmatic control group matched for gender, age, weight, and height.


Participants will sign a consent form and provide personal information such as gender, age, weight, and height for calculating BMI, pulmonary function test, and respiratory muscle strength test, as well as their asthmatic/clinical history. After collecting demographic information and obtaining consent from participants, they will be asked to remove their T-shirts and stand in the usual relaxed standing position facing the opposite side of the machine's window. When the machine is properly positioned, it will take photographs. which will then be converted into three-dimensional images on the computer for further analysis. When the participant is fully dressed and ready, the second test will be performed using the Biodex balance machine. The parameters and testing mode to begin the dynamic balance test will be entered into the machine, and the procedure will begin. The participants will be thanked for their participation and contribution to our study
