    Hi to all,

    My name is Michel Ladouceur and I am a graduate student at the
    School of Physical and Occupational Therapy of McGill University.
    Our lab is interested in analysing the walking pattern of spinal
    cord injured persons (SCI). The main objective of my research is to
    look at the changes occuring in the control of going over obstacles
    during an on-going FES-assisted walking training program.

    Until very recently the evaluation session were not very hard and
    subjects did not sweat. However, with a new experimental setup the
    subjects are beginning to sweat during the evaluation session which
    causes our marker attachments to fall off.

    I would like to ask if anyone has had that experience with any kind
    of subjects and what was the solution to that problem?

    e-mail: is true that my tactic is to make sweeping categorical
    statements. Whether or not this is a fault ... is debatable. My own
    feeling is that it leads more quickly to the solution of scientific
    problems than a cautious sitting on the fence.
