View Full Version : Gain at Increased Walking Speeds in Power Profile

A med student here is evaluating the relationship between increased walking
speed and resultant power curves. The power curves (for the hip, for example)
increase in amplitude with each speed increase--the question is, does any
study/information exist that describes whether a quantitative relationship
exists between increasing walking speed and the amplitude of the power
curve? Secondly, what is the relationship, if any, between walking speed
and the integral of the power curve (i.e. energy)? To be summarized.
Thanks in advance for your helpful input.
