As in forward fall recovery, longer step lengths are associated with greater braking forces and angular impulse applied during contact to oppose the linear and angular momentum induced by the perturbation.
The NJM patterns observed during swing leg contact phase (ankle plantar flexor, knee extensor, and hip flexor) were similar to those tasks requiring forward angular impulse generation [22,25-26,40].
During the forward fall recovery, a set of ankle plantar flexor, knee flexor, and hip extensor NJMs was used for neutralizing the forward angular impulse during the impact phase [5].
Mechanisms used by the support leg to regulate forward angular impulse during backward fall recovery require further investigation.
