Effects of suppressing arm swing on kinematics, kinetics, and energetics of human walking.


Human walking is characterized by pronounced arm movement, yet computer simulation models of walking usually lump the mass of the arms with the head and torso. The implications of this simplification have not been thoroughly documented in the literature. Thus, the purpose of this study was to establish the dependence of several biomechanical and energetic… (More)
