View Full Version : Ground Reaction force when foot is constrained

05-19-2004, 10:44 PM

I would like to know what is the typical reaction force of the ground during
unilateral stance phase of gait at normal pace, when the foot joints are
constrained. I mean by that, when the foot is not allowed to roll, such as
when walking with a ski boot for instance.

Thanks in advance for your input. The replies will be shared with the rest
of the group.
