Balance is a fundamental motor skill critical for human life. It is crucial for maintaining proper posture, overall well-being, and performing complex movements, especially in sports (Jaworski et al., 2023; Patti et al., 2023).

Early identification of any motor deficits facilitates timely intervention with customised programs, ensuring children acquire vital motor skills for future growth (Gallahue and Ozmun, 1998).

Abstract

Balance is a fundamental motor skill critical for human life. It is crucial for maintaining proper posture, overall well-being, and performing complex movements, especially in sports (Jaworski et al., 2023; Patti et al., 2023). Assessing the motor abilities of children is crucial for determining their developmental advancement in relation to their age. Early identification of any motor deficits facilitates timely intervention with customised programs, ensuring children acquire vital motor skills for future growth (Gallahue and Ozmun, 1998). However, it is important to acknowledge that performance, especially in children, can be influenced not only by physical and developmental factors but also by environmental variables such as stress or anxiety (Bonavolontà et al., 2021). Karadeniz et al. conducted a study including 842 primary school students, and presented their findings in this context. The present study aimed to examine the fundamental motor abilities of boys and girls aged 5–14 (Karadeniz et al., 2023). The authors noted a significant correlation between age and balancing ability, as evidenced by the increase in total KTK scores with age. The study results indicated that girls scored higher than boys. Furthermore, analyses of BMI data revealed lower balance performance among obese children, emphasising the importance of balance assessment in obese children (Karadeniz et al., 2023). The specific sports performed may affect the postural system and the development of the individual (Amato et al., 2023). Pekel et al. and Arslen et al. have reported interesting results (Pekel et al., 2023; Arslan et al.).
