View Full Version : Symmetry of gait

I am setting up a project in which subjects are given real time feed back on the symmetry of their gait.

I will be concentrating on three pieces of information:
1) Maximum vertical ground reaction force
2) Length of time the foot is in contact with the ground
3) The shape of the left and right VGRF vs time curves

These will be displayed in real time and allow the subject to compare left with right.

A brief literature survey reveals little help.

Has anyone on BIOMCH-L any experience of this?

Any help will be gratefully received.

I will prepare summaries.

Many thanks.
