Abstract

The role played by the trunk in gait is relatively unexplored in the literature. Considering that the upper body makes up two third of the body weight and to look at its role as being purely passive is a puzzling hypothesis. This paper investigates the postural strategies to adapt to walking with a backpack load. The aim of the current work is to explore the possibility of using simple models to study the role played by the upper body during specific tasks (in the present reported work walking up an inclined surface with a backpack).
