REQUEST FOR INFORMATION re: POSTURAL PERTURBATIONS

We are potentially interested in using a weighted pendulum
as an inexpensive method of postural perturbation,
i.e. by allowing a small padded weight to swing into
the back of the standing subject.

I know that other groups have used this approach,
but cannot find the papers that describe this work.

Does anyone have any information about this methodology?
