The center-of-pressure (CP) trajectory is a complex movement comprising both the vertically projected displacements of the centre-of-gravity (CGv) and the CP-CGv differences whose magnitudes are proportional to the horizontal accelerations communicated to the CG. One may ,therefore, investigate whether the information given by these movements can be differentially used for controlling the standing posture. To this aim, a group of healthy adults was tested through four conditions including visual feedback (VFB) of their CP in real time and, with a 578 ms delay, CP, CGv and CP-CGv movements. The CGv and, thus, CP-CGv movements, were implemented from a numerical filter applied to the CP displacements. The postural behavior was assessed on the basis of basic CGv and CP-CGv movements estimated from the CP trajectories. The postural behavior observed during delayed CGv feedback was similar to the one observed with the similarly delayed CP movements feedback. On the other hand, the delayed CP-CGv feedback infers a decrease of the CP-CGv movements and concomitantly an increase of the CGv movements. This data highlight that there is enough information in the displayed CP trajectories to enable control of the CG and that providing CP-CGv information can lead the subjects to solely decrease these movements
