BACKGROUND Normative gait data is essential for diagnosing and treating abnormal gait patterns. The examination of the onset of adult-like kinetic gait patterns in children has generated inconsistent results. The purpose of this study was to identify age-related differences in kinematic and kinetic gait parameters across children aged 3-13 years old. METHODS A motion capture system and three force plates were employed to compute sagittal joint angles and joint kinetics during walking and… CONTINUE READING
