 Two behavioral goals are achieved simultaneously during forward trunk bending in humans: the bending movement per se and equilibrium maintenance. The objective of the present study was to understand how the two goals are achieved by using a biomechanical model of this task. Since keeping the center of pressure inside the support area is a crucial condition for equilibrium maintenance during the movement, we decided to model an extreme case, called “optimal bending”, in which the movement is… CONTINUE READING
