Footwear traction and three-dimensional kinematics of level, downhill, uphill and cross-slope walking.

Abstract

Outdoor activities are a popular form of recreation, with hiking being the most popular outdoor activity as well as being the most prevalent in terms of injury. Over the duration of a hike, trekkers will encounter many different sloped terrains. Not much is known about the required traction or foot-floor kinematics during locomotion on these sloped surfaces… (More)
