The study deals with the biomechanics of balance recovery of human subjects in a falling forward situation. Eight subjects took part in the experiment. The subject, held in the initial leaning forward position, was released without his knowledge. The instruction was to recover the induced disequilibrium by walking. The biomechanical analysis shows two phases in the balance recovery. The first phase--preparation phase--is characterized by three events at fixed timing whatever the initial… CONTINUE READING
