----------------------------

As a mature MSc student I am researching running in females and trying to obtain a measure of dynamic posture. I do not mean dynamic stability as in quiet standing, but a biomechanical measure of what constitutes 'good posture' during running. I am investigating, amongst other things, the position of the COM and the base of support. ( I have the Hay references.) Does any one have any leads for literature or ideas/opinions regarding the positioning of the COM, in relation to the base of support, during running. I have found Winter's references for walking but have not found many references for running.
Thank You
Regards Judith Bower

This was very helpful to see a similar modelling idea to the one I am investigating.
There are not many references to the positioning of the COM in relation to the COP in running.
Thanks
