Kinetic and kinematic responses during walking vary by footwear condition. Load carriage also influences gait patterns, but it is unclear how an external load influences barefoot walking. Twelve healthy adults (5 women, 7 men) with no known gait abnormalities participated in this study (age=23±3years, height=1.73±0.11m, and mass=70.90±12.67kg). Ground… CONTINUE READING
