There are a number of competing scientific hypotheses about the structure and parameters of the human control system concerned with balance. System identification techniques have potential to distinguish between such competing hypotheses. As a step towards this goal, the data from an initial series of experiments involving balancing an inverted pendulum by a human via a joystick was analysed using a recently-developed two-stage continuous-time identification method.
