Quiet standing posture in humans has often been modeled as a single inverted pendulum pivoting around the ankle joint. However, recent studies have suggested that anti-phase action between leg and trunk segments plays a significant role in stabilizing posture by reducing the acceleration of the center of mass (COM) of the body. The aim of this study is to test the hypothesis that anti-phase action is attenuated in the elderly compared to the young. The anterior-posterior movements of leg and… CONTINUE READING
