To our knowledge, no one has explored the effect of modifications in balance recovery instructions on the kinetics of the threshold of balance recovery. In particular, the effect of instructions limiting the number of steps on joint torques at the maximum lean angle has not been quantified. We determined the joint torques at the ankle, knee and hip of 28(More)
A safety harness system is essential to ensure participant safety in experiments at the threshold of balance recovery where avoiding a fall is not always possible. The purpose of this study was to propose a method to determine the maximum allowable force on a safety harness cable to discriminate a successful from a failed balance recovery. Data from 12(More)
To our knowledge, the effect of instructions limiting the number of steps on the threshold of balance recovery has not been quantified, which could make comparisons between studies difficult. We determined the maximum forward lean angles from which 28 younger adults could be suddenly released and still recover balance using: (i) only a single step, (ii) no(More)
