The mechanical energy costs of walking have been studied in ten stroke patients with hemiplegia. A two-dimensional sagittal plane cinematographic analysis of two strides of the subjects' normal walking was undertaken, yielding continuous information about the mechanical energy costs of the whole body and each of its parts, about the energy types involved, and the amounts of energy conservation. The large head, arms, and trunk (HAT) were found to dominate the total pattern. Three major… CONTINUE READING
