The capacity for upright standing and bipedal walking is a fundamental human function. The mechanism of posture and locomotion depends on sensory input (mainly visual, vestibular, and proprioceptive), cerebral central processing (identification and localization of target, planning of the action), and execution of the movement-robust involuntary and voluntary muscular responses with prompt adjustments of the standing and stepping according to environmental or internal conditions.
