|Variable||D0 mean (SD)||D30 mean (SD)||D90 mean (SD)||Time effectcF value (P)|
|PVFBW||3.9 (2.2)||3.6 (1.8)||4.0 (3.2)||0.19 (0.82)|
|CSOM||11.3 (16.3)||5.7 (12.1)||3.9 (10.5)||0.94 (0.34)|
|EDA||15.6 (14.4)||11.4 (12.7)||10.7 (8.6)||16.76 (< 0.001)|
aCoefficient of variation (CV) is calculated as the ratio of the standard deviation to the mean. bPVFBW: peak vertical ground reaction force adjusted for body weight change; CSOM: client-specific outcome measures; EDA: electrodermal activity.
Descriptive data are represented as mean (SD).cThe mean CV were considered not variable at each time point, when time did not exert a significant effect with P-value higher than 0.05.
