Surface perturbation has been used for decades to study balance and postural control; however the behavior of the trunk in these postural responses has been largely overlooked. Thirteen healthy males (18-23 yrs) were exposed to horizontal support surface translations delivered randomly in one of eight different horizontal directions in both sitting and standing. A 4-segment model of the trunk was used to estimate the kinematics and kinetics associated with the postural response, while surface… CONTINUE READING
