The aim of this study was to investigate relationship between Skin Resistance Level (SRL) and one leg standing balance in healthy subjects. Sixty eight voluntary students from the University of Dumlupinar Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation school were participated to the study. One leg standing balance tests were measured on dominant and non-dominant leg in three positions; eyes open (60 sec), eyes closed (30 sec) and eyes open with head rotation (30 sec) with arms held comfortably at the side. SRLs were recorded with two surface electrodes by the Digital Multimeter (DT-9923B) tool during standing on one leg. Carbon electrodes were placed over the 5 metatarsus heads and heel with conductive gel. No statistically differences were between male and female groups in static and dynamic one leg standing test results (p>0.05). The final SRL values were statistically higher in non-dominant leg than dominant in both male and female subjects (p
