Dear Biomechanics-List,

I am interested in GRF in normal walking humans. My literature search was
not very profitable. There are many studies on GRF, but mainly the vertical
and sagittal components of the forces are investigated, and the connection
with walking speed. In particular, I investigate if there are sex
differences, and I found that the medio-lateral force component is
promising to discriminate the the walking of men and women.
I would be grateful for some references or hints.

Thank you in advance.
Regards, Angelika Hofstetter
