Kinematic Effects Of Stride Length Perturbations On System Com Horizontal Velocity During Locomotion, Josh Bailey, Andrew Nordin, Janet Dufek, D. Lee

Interdisciplinary Research Scholarship Day

PURPOSE: To investigate the kinematic effect on the systems’ center of mass horizontal velocity in response to stride length perturbations. METHODS: Twelve healthy adults (23.1±7.71 yrs; 1.69±0.1 m; 66.82±12.6 kg; leg length 894.7±66.1 mm) performed 5 trials of preferred speed walking (PW) and running (PR)followed by 5 stride length perturbations based on percentages of leg length (60%, 80%, 100%, 120% and 140%). 3D kinematic analysis was completed using a 12-camera infrared motion capture system (Vicon, 200hz). Dependent variables computer for each condition included: center of mass horizontal ...


Step Length Perturbations Alter Variations In Center Of Mass Horizontal Velocity, Josh Bailey, Andrew Nordin, D. Lee, Janet Dufek Apr 2013

Step Length Perturbations Alter Variations In Center Of Mass Horizontal Velocity, Josh Bailey, Andrew Nordin, D. Lee, Janet Dufek

Interdisciplinary Research Scholarship Day

PURPOSE: The purpose of the study was to investigate the effects of SL perturbations on system COM forward velocity (vx) during walking gait. METHODS: Eight healthy adults (23.5±3.6 yrs; 1.72±0.18 m; 73.11±15.29 kg) performed 5 trials of preferred speed walking (PW) and running (PR) followed by 5 stride length perturbations based on percentages of leg length (LL: 60%, 80%, 100%, 120% and 140%). 3D kinematic analysis was completed using a 12-camera infrared motion capture system (Vicon MX T40-S, 200Hz). Data filtering and interpolation included a low pass, 4th order Butterworth filter ...


Effects Of Shoe Outsole Design And Incline On Walking Biomechanics, Sarah Horsch, Janet Dufek Apr 2013

Effects Of Shoe Outsole Design And Incline On Walking Biomechanics, Sarah Horsch, Janet Dufek

Interdisciplinary Research Scholarship Day

The purpose of the study was to examine the effects of incline at foot contact of treadmill walking between rounded outsole (ROS) and traditional outsole (TOS) shoes. A rounded outsole shoe (ROS) is specifically designed with a fulcrum under the sole so that when the mass of the body is over it, the foot is forced to roll anteriorly. Traditional ROS studies have included analyses on bipedal stance single leg standing, muscle
activity during treadmill walking, kinetics during over ground walking, and kinematics after a 6-week accommodation period. Presently, there is no research comparing a ROS and a TOS at ...
