Volitional step initiation invariably includes a medio-lateral anticipatory postural adjustment (ML APA), which causes the center of mass (COM) to be propelled toward the stance-limb side prior to the lifting of the swing foot. The present study examined whether this type of anticipatory control plays a functional role in maintaining lateral stability during the rapid compensatory stepping reactions that are evoked when whole-body stability is challenged by unpredictable perturbation.
