Walking is a complex dynamic task that requires the generation of whole-body angular momentum to maintain dynamic balance and perform a wide range of locomotor tasks. Previous studies have shown that controlling angular momentum is essential to maintaining dynamic balance and preventing falls during walking  and recovering from a trip . Others have suggested that angular momentum is highly regulated by the central nervous system  and that control synergies may be used to provide this regulation .
