Abstract

Human standing stability was evaluated using a swash plate drop device in a disturbance application. Under different experimental conditions using the device, electromyogram (EMG) measurements showed that the left and right lower limb muscles were used dif-ferently. It also demonstrated that the dynamics also differed depending on the experimental conditions. In particular, the dynamics of standing stabilization in a tandem standing position and a normal standing position significantly differed, and the activities of related muscles were also significantly different; this indicates that standing stability may potentially depend on the subjects. These results indicate the need for the com-prehensive consideration of the standing and disturbance conditions during the quantitative evaluation of human standing stability.
