Abstract

Maintaining postural stability is a complex process [1] involving the coordinated actions of biomechanical, sensory, motor, and central nervous system components. A relatively simple biomechanical definition for postural stability can be formulated in terms of the position of the body center of gravity relative to the base of support. The body movements used to maintain postural stability, however, are complex because of the number of joint systems and muscles involved. The center of gravity (CoG) is the point at which the whole weight of a body may be considered to act. In humans who are standing quietly and vertically erect, the CoG is located at the level of the hips and slightly forward of the ankle joints. CoG height is 0.5527 of total height. CoG and center of mass (CoM) are equivalent points in space when the gravitational field is uniform and gravity is the only force under consideration.
