The postural control system is assessed by observing body sway while the subject involved aims at maintaining a specified up-right posture. Internal masses generate internal reaction forces that constitute an internal mechanical stimulus that may contribute to cause segmental displacements, i.e. body sway. Thus, gaining knowledge about the amplitude and direction of these reaction forces would contribute to gain insights into the mechanisms that influence the maintenance of balance and into its… CONTINUE READING
