Definition:Any measurement related to a change of place or position of all or part of the body of an organism, or to the ability of an organism to maintain bodily equilibrium and postural control, the motor control that stabilizes the body in space by integrating sensory input about body position (somatosensory, visual, and vestibular input) with motor output to coordinate the action of muscles and keep the body's center of mass within its base of support.
