Uemura test is performed in 4 steps: 1) standing at two feet with eyes opened; 2) standing at two feet with eyes closed; 3) standing at one foot with eyes opened; 4) standing at one foot with eyes closed. It is recommended to perform the test at each foot separately; the best performance is taken into account. If the patient is stable at one foot with eyes closed more than 10 s he is considered to be healthy. Uemura test is evaluated in 5 point score: 0 points – patient is stable 10 s with eyes closed at one foot;
