Effect of Backpack Strap Patterns on Gait Parameters in Young Adults at Self-Selected Normal and Fast Walking Speeds.

Abstract

BACKGROUND The effects of backpack load on young adults' gait parameters have received little attention. We previously reported that with a backpack load within 15% body weight (BW), young adults maintain their gait parameters at the expense of increased exertion during a 6-minute walk at self-selected normal walking speed. However, the effect of backpack… (More)
