  • Inverse dynamics for toe walkers-VICON system

    Dear all,
    We have been working on a project to investigate the locomotion patterns of individuals showing intermittent toe walking (Phelan-McDermid Sx). During locomotion, these people have intermittent toe contact to the floor instead of heel strike.
    We use the VICON Plugin Gait Full Body Template to record their kinematic joint motion and the kinetics. I have been told by VICON sells that the inverse dynamic model would be different between toe strike and heel strike. If this is the case, is there a fair way to compare the locomotion characteristics (joint angular motion in particular) between healthy controls and these patients? Any comments and suggestions will be appreciated! Thank you for your time.
