Generally, activities of daily living are performed smoothly at a subconscious level. However, in order to perform these activities smoothly, input and integration of information from each sensory stimulus and checking of the information with motion memory is necessary. In this paper, we discuss the role of sensory inputs, such as visual, somatic, and vestibular stimuli, in maintaining postural control. We also present information regarding postural changes that occur as a result of receiving somatic stimuli.
