  • movement of the spine during human walking

    Dear Biomechlers,

    I'm working on human gait with special focus on the movements of the spine.
    Not so much on the torques because the 3D-video-method we apply can't deal
    very well with small angles occuring around one axis (here vertical). What
    I'm especially looking for is literature on movements in the frontal- and
    sagittal plane. Unfortunately for me most papers on human gait kinematics
    are about the lower extremities. Till now I have only found some articles
    from Stokes et al.(1989), Thorstensson et al.(1984) and some from van
    Emmerik and Wagenaar.

    So I would be very grateful for any hints as where to search for literature
    about spine and trunk movements during walking.
    Thanks in advance to everyone who will respond, all replies will be sent to
    the list,

    Simone Monreal.
