This study focused on spatial and temporal variability of the stride in human gait. We determined the role of stride frequency (F) and stride length (L) on those parameters. Eight healthy subjects walked on a treadmill using 25 different FL combinations (0.95<L<1.5 m, and 0.8<F<1.26 Hz). The results showed that spatial and temporal variabilities tend to increase in concert with respect to change in stride parameters. In addition, stride variability was found (1) to be minimal at F=1 Hz; and (2… CONTINUE READING
