Turning in humans represents a greater challenge than straight ahead walking in terms of postural control. Indeed, when steering along a curved path humans have to adapt their locomotor pattern by taking into account centrifugal acceleration, which tends to keep their bodies along a straight trajectory. Many observations have been reported with respect to changes in the locomotor pattern between straight and curved walking, at the level of the lower limbs (legs) coordination. In this study, we… CONTINUE READING
