How do we determine balance and stability of an object? In physical science balance and stability must be measured separately in order to quantify its efficacy. In recalling my own knee injury, I’ve come to understand human locomotion as a mathematic expression with infinite outcome combinations. But like all mathematic expressions there are rules, and the “human locomotion” expression is well informed by similar data which in turn can be translated into a predictive model. Most clinicians and research scientist study locomotion through Biomechanics. I am using Computational Neuroscience to understand the principles that govern the abilities of the nervous system as it relates to locomotion and specific movements that can lead to injury. Von M.
