This study investigated the hypothesis that virtual time-to-contact, which specifies the time to reach the functional stability boundary, is a variable controlled in the maintenance of upright posture. Three different levels of support surface compliance were used on a force platform (no foam, 5 cm of foam, and 15 cm of foam). The participant’s task was to stand still under each surface support condition both with and without vision. The stability boundary was determined for each set of… CONTINUE READING
