Influence of backpack load and gait speed on plantar forces during walking.

Abstract

The purpose of this study is to examine the differences in plantar force associated with changes in backpack load and gait speed during walking. The F-scan tethered system was used to collect plantar pressure data. Subjects were asked to walk on a treadmill with varied levels of backpack load (0%, 10%, 20%, and 30% of body mass) and gait speed (4, 5, and 6… (More)
