Simple Tensegrity structureThe implication of considering the human body as a tensegrity structure is that we can now see how a force applied to one point of the structure is dispersed through the structure through specific elements – and with this in mind we can allow this process to happen – much as we regard the establishment and fluctuations of a peng pathway – instantly tracking an external force to channel it most efficiently to ground with minimal disruption to the overall structure.
