Because it was shown that the different demands placed upon the non-dominant and dominant limbs may cause measurable differences in postural control and response latency in physically active individuals, we hypothesized that muscle latency and proprioceptive ability would not be different between the limbs in sedentary individuals because of the anticipation that similar demands would be placed on both legs in these individuals.
