The aim of this study was to elucidate whether and how the duration and/or amplitude parameters of anticipatory postural adjustments (APAs) affected the task performance in a single step forward from differences in the initial horizontal location of CoM. Ten male subjects performed initiation of a single step forward with the right swing leg with strict regulation of the step length at three initial body positions (Sw, step initiation from a 50% position of the center of pressure (CoP) shift in… CONTINUE READING
