I am currently processing results for my master's thesis which involves
examining functional changes in the elderly in response to strength
training. Of particular interest are aspects of gait and the associated
changes I am discovering as I review the data. There are a great many
changes in the mediolateral directions ( to be expected) as well as a
reduction in the vertical torque values from pre to post.

I have been unsuccessful in locating sufficient references regarding
torques about the vertical axis and would be appreciative of any and all
suggestions regarding this matter.

Thank you in advance.
