Sitting down and squatting are routine activities in daily living that lower the body mass by flexing the trunk and legs, but they obviously require different motor strategies for each goal posture. The former action must transfer the supporting surface onto a seat, whereas the latter must maintain the center of mass within the same base of both feet. By comparing the performance of both maneuvers, the mechanisms involved in initiating the downward-oriented movements and the process of… CONTINUE READING
