Adaptation and Generalization to Opposing Perturbations in Walking
(Elsevier Inc., 2013-08)
Little is known on how the CNS would select its movement options when a person faces a novel or recurring perturbation of two opposing types (slip or trip) while walking. The purposes of this study were (1) to determine ...
Alteration in community-dwelling older adults' level walking following perturbation training
While perturbation training is promising in reducing fall-risk among older adults, its impact on altering their spontaneous gait pattern has not been investigated. The purpose of this study was to determine to what extent ...
Limits of Recovery Against Slip-Induced Falls While Walking
Slip-induced falls in gait often have devastating consequences. The purposes of this study were 1) to select the determinants that can best discriminate the outcomes (recoveries or falls) of an unannounced slip induced in ...
Reactive Control and its Operation Limits in Responding to a Novel Slip in Gait
(Springer Verlag, 2010-06-07)
Abstract The purposes of this study were: (1) to examine the reactive control of the resultant joint moments at the lower limbs in response to a novel and unannounced slip; (2) to establish individualized forward-dynamics ...
Generalization of Motor Adaptation to Repeated-Slip Perturbation Across Tasks
Similar adaptations improve both proactive and reactive control of center-of-mass (COM) stability and limb support against gravity during different daily tasks (e.g., sitto-stand and walking) as a consequence of perturbation ...
