Does anyone know of any biomechanical or gait analysis research
involving tripping while walking. I am interested to know average trip
distances or steps taken with respect to walking speed before falling
and also the influence of sex or weight (especially obesity). I would
also like to know if there is any research done on the causation of
trips with unknown causes (i.e. tripping for no apparent reason).

Thanks,

John
