The midgait protocol is the most commonly used method to collect pressure platform data. Spatial limitations, however, frequently render this technique unsuitable. Alternative gait protocols have focused on gait initiation procedures in obtaining data. The current study investigated whether a commonly cited two-step gait initiation protocol, or a two-step gait termination protocol produced pressure data more representative of the criterion, midgait method. A pressure platform was used to… CONTINUE READING
