Describe the human gait cycle. Explain the sinusoidal pattern experienced in normal gait.
Using the below data complete the table to determine stride length, stride rate and then calculate velocity.

SLOW: The subject took 33 steps of approximately 0.981 m in length. It took 18.4 seconds to complete the 30 m path.

MEDIUM: The subject took 24 steps of approximately 1.27 m in length. It took 10.6 seconds to complete the 30 m path.

FAST: The subject took 16 steps of approximately 1.84 m in length. It took 4.9 seconds to complete the 30 m path.


Speed Stride length (m) Stride rate (strides/s) Velocity (m.s-1)
