...A. L. Hof; S. M. Vermerris; W. A. Gjaltema SUMMARY During walking on a treadmill 10 human subjects (mean age 20 years) were perturbed by 100 ms pushes or pulls to the left or the right, of various magnitudes and in various phases of the gait cycle. Balance was maintained by (1) a stepping strategy...

... of fit as a limitation in arboreal locomotion of snakes. However, the slower speeds on horizontal perches compared to tunnels also suggest that balance and grip may further limit locomotor performance. Concertina locomotion can be an extremely demanding mode of locomotion and hence is well suited...
