The study was conducted to determine the effect of proprioceptive training on foot pressure distribution and stabilometric performance of sprinters. To facilitate the study ten female sprinters of the LNIPE match practice group were selected. The selected subjects were in the range of 18 to 24 years of age. BTS-P-Walk (Bodopometric platform) was used to collect the data for this study. The subjects were asked to stand still in a normal standing position on the bodopometric platform and data was recorded for a 05- sec duration. The data collected from participants were statistically analyzed by employing paired t-test to examine the significant effect of proprioceptive training on the dependent variables The result has exhibited that the obtained value of paired t-test has shown an insignificant difference between the pre-test and post-test of the female sprinters as the p-value is greater at 0.05 level of significance.
