The purpose of this paper is to clarify the age-associated changes in walking movements. A two-dimensional movement analysis was conducted on a sample of 177 healthy women aged 19-82 years, with performance descriptors, kinematics, and kinetics as the parameters. An analysis of co-variance, with the gait velocity as co-variate and the categorized age group(More)
We tried to establish an age-predictive equation from kinematic and kinetic parameters during walking using the 2007 Okada database of Japanese elderly. Some predictive equations were established for each gender (109 males and 139 females)--once for all variables, second for the stepwise variable selection method. The range of motion (ROM) of knee and hip(More)
The objectives of this study were to explore a method of evaluating the walking motion of elderly males using mainly kinetic parameters and to determine how to maintain their level of walking motion to equal that of the young. We employed the coefficient of variation (CV) (=standard deviation[SD]/MEAN * 100), z-score, and weighted z-score (WZ) (=z-score/CV)(More)
