CTE Resource Center - Verso

Virginia’s CTE Resource Center

Demonstrate safe techniques to enhance proprioception for self and others, explaining each technique.


Demonstration should include activities that safely challenge the individual to perform balance-oriented tasks in response to various stimuli. It should incorporate stable/unstable and soft/firm surfaces, differing levels of sensory input and balance and coordination drills under a variety of conditions. Equipment and techniques used should reflect age, sport/activity, gender, and other individual considerations.

Process/Skill Questions

  • What are key elements of safe and appropriate proprioception techniques?
  • What is the role of proprioception in injury/reinjury prevention?
  • What effects do stable/unstable and soft/firm surfaces have on proprioception? How does level of sensory input affect proprioception?
  • What types of equipment are used to enhance proprioception?
  • How is proprioception measured?
  • How can proprioception be enhanced in situations with little or no traditional equipment?
  • How do age, sport/activity, gender, and other individual considerations factor in the development of proprioception?
