Purpose. to explore relationships between load carriage economy and the kinematics and kinetics of load carriage using both a backpack (bP) and a double pack (DP). Basic procedures. Nine participants walked on a treadmill at gradients of between 27% downhill and 20% uphill, and over a force plate on level ground, at a speed of 3 km.h-1. Expired air was collected throughout the treadmill experiment and all experiments were filmed for subsequent biomechanical analysis. The relative economy of… CONTINUE READING
