Dear Louisa,

After Jim Richards correctly pointed out that toe velocity is a better
signal than acceleration to indicate toe-off, I thought I'd better go
back and look at this again. By chance, there was a typhoon this
weekend, so I had plenty of time to make a summary of all the different
possibilities at:

http://guardian.curtin.edu.au/cga/faq/toe-off.html
or http://www.polyu.edu.hk/cga/faq/toe-off.html
or http://www.univie.ac.at/cga/faq/toe-off.html

Thanks to Jim for correcting me!

Best wishes,

Chris
