Balance is the foundation of all movement, but people rarely pay attention to the complex dynamics of standing still. This fun challenge illuminates the intricate workings of balance by testing static and dynamic balance, core stability and coordination. You stand on a platform that tips side-to-side and grip a set of handlebars until you are balanced. Then, you let go and electronic sensors measure the time you can stay balanced without tipping to one side. Your score in seconds is shown on the exhibit. You'll quickly discover how hard it is to coordinate more than 200 bones and 600 muscles just to stay in one place!
