  • References about turning during human walking

    and N. B. Alexander, “Abilities to turn suddenly while
    walking: effects of age,gender, and available response
    time,” Journal of Gerontology: Medical Sciences, vol.
    52A, pp. M88-M93, 1997.

    locomotor trajectory,” Experimental Brain Research,

    To the best of my knowledge, the only relevant
    references at
    present are those by Aftab Patla. The first (1991) of
    examined the kinetics of sudden 30 or 60 degrees
    turns during
    walking at preferred speed. The second study (1999)
    looked at
    some kinematic factors during 20, 40 and 60 degree
    turns and
    compared them when subjects had short or long notice
    of the turn.
    Hase and Stein have also described the strategies used
    to make
    sudden 180deg during walking and there are a few
    comparing the kinetics of sudden turns to those of
    initiating and
    stopping walking.

    An entire chapter is devoted to Kinematics and is very
    help full.
