Analysis by hybrid computer of ground reactions in walking
The aim of the present study was to develop an efficient technique for characterizing human gaits for use in clinical rehabilitation and prosthetic practice. Because impairment of gait occurs frequently, it is of fundamental importance that improved methods and devices for the functional recovery of disabled persons be developed. In this context, the possibility of a workable description of the gait is of primary importance.
