>Hi Sylvain
I thought that reference sounded familiar from my previous research
on amputee locomotion. I looked through my files and I have a copy of the
report. You may have heard from others as well so please let me know if you
want to borrow my copy and I will send it to you.

I believe the Yale University library has complete reports from the early
gait work done at Berkeley. I was able to get these through interlibrary
loan about 15 years ago, but I am not sure if this report contains the
article you want.
