    During locomotion spinal short latency reflexes are rhythmically modulated and depressed compared to rest. In adults this modulation is severely disturbed after bilateral spinal lesions indicating a role for supra-spinal control. Soleus reflex amplitudes are large in the stance phase and...

    It is established that the ratio between step length (SL) and step frequency (SF) is constant over a large range of walking speed. However, few data are available about the spontaneous variability of this ratio during unconstrained outdoor walking, in particular over a sufficient number of...

    Nordic Walking is walking with the aid of two poles specially designed and making a rhythmic movement of arm swing, very similar to normal gait cycle but of greater amplitude. As overall exercise activates a large number of muscle groups, however its practitioners refer low-perceived effort....

    The article discusses a study of the trade-off between energetics and stability during downhill walking. The researchers simulated a dynamic walking model in which they predicted that increased slope would reduce the needed actuation and decrease stability. They found that steeper slopes...

    Background Previous studies have assessed reliability of insole technology for evaluating foot pressure distribution during linear walking. Since in natural motion straight walking is intermingled with turns, we determined the test-retest reliability of insole assessment for curved as well as...

  • Ankle extensor proprioceptors contribute to the enhancement of the soleus EMG during the stance phase of human walking. Grey, Michael J.; Mazzaro, Nazarena; Nielsen, Jens Bo; Sinkjær, Thomas // Canadian Journal of Physiology & Pharmacology;Aug2004, Vol. 82 Issue 8/9, p610 

    A rapid plantar flexion perturbation applied to the ankle during the stance phase of the step cycle during human walking unloads the ankle extensors and produces a marked decline in the soleus EMG. This demonstrates that sensory activity contributes importantly to the enhancement of the ankle...

  • Gait acts as a gate for reflexes from the foot. Duysens, J.; Bastiaanse, C. M.; Smits-Engelsman, B. C. M.; Dietz, V. // Canadian Journal of Physiology & Pharmacology;Aug2004, Vol. 82 Issue 8/9, p715 

    During human gait, electrical stimulation of the foot elicits facilitatory P2 (medium latency) responses in TA (tibialis anterior) at the onset of the swing phase, while the same stimuli cause suppressive responses at the end of swing phase, along with facilitatory responses in antagonists. This...

    The article focuses on a study which compared the gait variability data in over-ground walking between young and older women. The study included 22 young and 32 older women who were asked to complete two walking protocols. Study authors claimed that the gait variability in repeated single...
