  • Request for continuous walking data

    Dear subscribers,

    I would like to acquire a timeseries of landmark coordinate data
    from continuous walking. Ideally, this would include 3-D
    coordinates for the toe, MTP, heel, lateral malleolus, head of fibula,
    lateral epicondyle, greater trochanter, of both lower limbs and the
    ASIS and PSIS of the pelvis for at least 10 consecutive gait cycles,
    however coordinates for one lower limb and the pelvis or trunk in
    either 2-D (sagittal plane) or 3-D would be sufficient. This data
    would be used to validate a model that I have constructed as part of
    my PhD project. I have checked the ISB website and some other
    sites and while there is some gait data available, I have been
    unable to locate any timeseries data from consecutive gait cycles.

    The reason that I am requesting data instead of collecting it myself
    is that I aim to use an electromagnetic system to collect landmark
    coordinates, and am currently waiting for a wooden treadmill to be
    constructed that will (theoretically) allow distortion free kinematic
    data to be collected. However, time ticks on and the end of my
    PhD draws nearer, and I am hoping to be able to test my model
    while waiting for the treamill to arrive.

    Naturally, any data that is contributed would not be used in any
    publications and/or presentations without the contributors

    Thanks in advance,
