  • Normal plots of joint forces during gait


    I have a question for the collective net.wisdom of the electronic
    biomechanics community:

    I am searching for published plots of the average normalized
    intersegmental resultant joint forces in 3D of the lower limb joints based
    upon a large population sample. There is such data for the joint moments,
    for instance the paper by Kadaba et al. in the Journal of Orthopaedic
    Research several years ago. Ideally, what I would like to find is plots
    just like those, which show the average and standard deviation of the
    values of the moment components as a function of percent gait cycle.

    I have found limited data such as single subject plots but I am looking
    for a broad data set. As some of you know, the gait software that I have
    written can calculate these quantities and I have done it numerous times.
    However, I am seeking this data for a review article and would like to use
    only previously published works rather than my own data. Besides, I would
    have to collect a lot more data than I have in my posession right now- too
    much time required.

    Thanks for your help. I'll summarize the replies I receive.

    P.S. The port of my locomotion analysis and display software from VAX/UNIX
    platforms to the PC is moving along. Look for an announcement of where you
    can download it late in June or early in July.
