The purpose of this study was to show the detection of the head movement within relatively the posture function. An analysis of the posture function was inquired a displacement that the ranges of stance direction showed generally a variation across all condition through the head movement. CNS condition (C_RL-MIN-AVG) was verified slightly greater variation at $0.226{\pm}0.04$ units. Somatosensory condition (So_$RL-_{MIN-AVG}$) was verified slightly greater variation at $0.939{\pm}0.46$ units. Vestibular condition (Ve_$RL-_{MIN-AVG}$) was verified slightly greater variation at $4.009{\pm}1.05$ units. Vision condition (Vi_$RL-_{MIN-AVG}$) was verified greater variation at $8.336{\pm}4.05$ units. When the movement head of vision characteristic function was presented a diminutive variance. On the CNS characteristic condition of the movement head function was presented a diminutive variance.
