  • Static human balance models

    Dear All,

    I am currently seeking references or useful contacts on maintainable static
    stable positions during standing and sitting. For example limits of
    stability during standing body sway/automatic postural responses of the
    human body, while standing. Along with the static stable positions that
    can be maintained for a period of time during sit to stand (considered as
    a series of static steps), areas of consideration are effects of eyes open
    and closed, upper body movements i.e. head and arms and external
    disturbances/support aids.

    It is the intention to interprete these static stable positions into a
    constraint based computer human model, to evaluate the human
    interaction with products/disability aids and how they aid stability. Are
    there any existing similar computer models?

    Look forward to some interesting reading,
