Abstract: Balance in rowing boats is crucial for experienced and non-experienced rowers, allowing them to keep their blades off the water and keep the boat from rolling that requires rowers to contract muscles to even out the boat and to stabilize their bodies. The purpose of this study was to create reference stabilometric values in fixed seat rowing and compare them between male and female rowers in different sensorial conditions with eyes open and closed. Fifteen subjects voluntarily participated in this study, six male rowers and nine female rowers from University of Alicante fixed seat rowing team, all belonging to the senior category. A FreeMed baropodometric platform (Rome, Italy) was used for the stabilometric measurements: (TE) total excursion of the CoP, (CEA) area of the 95 % confidence ellipse, (MV) mean velocity, (MDx) mediolateral direction, (MDy) anteroposterior direction, (RMSx) amplitude in mediolateral direction and (RMSy) amplitude in anteroposterior direction. Results indicate that male rowers had greater ability to maintain balance than female rowers in bipodal stance with eyes open and closed. Female rowers demonstrated more ability to preserve sitting position than male rowers with eyes open and closed. However, there was no clear trend in relation to a greater balance between male and female in monopodal stance.
