I received a number of responses to my request for normal adult gait data. Thank you to all who responded. Below is a summary:
A number of people pointed out the data tabulated in the back of Winters' Biomechanics and Motor Control of Human movement.
A number of people also suggested the Clinical Gait Analysis Website:
http://www.univie.ac.at/cga/data/
and the ISB website

In addition, I received the following:


There is some gait data available in this open accesspaper. Not too sure if it is of use to you but do check it out.

a vast research project was conducted at the "Freie> Universitšt Berlin" which assemled gait data of four subjects. You can download the results under the following links a description of the hows and tos is given at these homepages.

David Winter has done plenty of work on the kinematics, kinetics and EMG of adult gait. A key reference is the one found at the following web-page:
http://www.health.uottawa.ca/biomech/watbiom/book1.htm

In the appendices of this book, there is lots of normalised raw data that you can copy into MATLAB and compare your data against.

Thanks again to all who responded.
