Abstract: The ability to limit the trunk flexion associated with an anteriorly directed trip is a determinant of successful recovery of recovering postural stability and is subservient to rapidly detecting and correcting the imposed trunk flexion in the available time. This experiment tested the hypothesis that subjects demonstrating greater eccentric trunk/hip extension strength, faster voluntary reaction times, shorter automatic response latencies, and larger automatic activation amplitudes of the paraspinal muscles, …
