In an effort to investigate the mechanics of drop landing on a flat surface, bilateral performance characteristics during the landing were investigated. Two force plates were used as landing surfaces, and the six component kinetic time histories and the path of the center of pressure were measured for both feet. The forces were combined to obtain the(More)
The current method of visualizing pressure and shear data under a subject's foot during gait is the Pedotti, or "butterfly" diagram. This method of force platform data visualization was introduced in the 1970s to display the projection of the ground reaction force vector in the sagittal plane. The purpose of the current study was to examine individual(More)
