Abstract

For any static unsupported posture to be maintained, two sets of equilibrium conditions must be satisfied:
  1. (i)

    a vertical line, drawn through the centre of gravity of the body, must fall within the body’s base of support;

     
  2. (ii)

    the net torque (or moment) about each articulation of the body must be zero.
