When humans stand upright on a platform that sinusoidally translates in the anterior-posterior direction, the movements of upper and lower body segments are appropriately coordinated, in order to keep the body within its limits of stability. A significant fluctuation in this behaviour is evident across subjects and perturbation conditions. The inter- and intrasubject variability in the body segment kinematics, as occurs during repeated trials across different conditions, is quantitatively… CONTINUE READING
