OBJECTIVES To test the hypothesis that reducing vertical center of mass (COM) displacement will lower the metabolic cost of human walking. To examine changes in joint work associated with increasing and decreasing vertical COM movement during gait. DESIGN Randomized repeated measures. SETTING Human Neuromechanics Laboratory, University of Michigan. PARTICIPANTS Able-bodied subjects (N=10). INTERVENTIONS Subjects walked at 1.2m/s on a treadmill and overground. Subjects manipulated… CONTINUE READING
