UNLABELLED It has been established in able-bodied children that traditional biomechanical descriptors of gait such as stride length or stride frequency do not fully account for the differences seen in the energy cost of locomotion noted with age. Hence, measures of total body mechanical power output have been adopted to explain these differences. PURPOSE The aim of this study was to estimate the ability of this mechanical power calculation to explain the variability in the metabolic energy… CONTINUE READING
