    Upright posture
    Erection of the trunk is part of the locomotor repertoire of all primates, although many are normally quadrupedal in their resting postures and gaits. Humans and their hominid ancestors are the only primates who are, or were, habitual erect bipeds in whom the vertebral column is normally held vertically in both stance and gait.

    Holger, I think "upright gait" might also be used sometimes. "Walking upright" is what sounds most familiar to me in this context as a layman. I'm not a scientist. It depends a little on who your audience is.

    Actually it's more common as a verb, like:

    Man is the only animal that walks exclusively upright.

    So, to make a noun out of this you use the gerund and get "walking upright". Voilà.
