Dear biomch-l members,

I am in a need for knee horizontal velocities during running
(jogging), if possible in relation to running velocity.
I would be grateful for such data or at least a reference.

I am trying to assess the injury risk of patellar fracture as a result
of a knee impact against an obstacle during running. In order to
estimate the impact energy I need the knee horizontal velocity. The
horizontal knee velocity as a function of time during one cycle for
various running velocities would help me a lot.

Thank you very much in advance for your help
