Energy-Information Performance Criteria of Walking
In this paper the relationship is given between energy consumption and entropy of human walking as a function of velocity. With respect to velocity, energy demand and entropy functions have similar concave forms, with the minimum at free walking velocity. The results are important for new approaches to movement evaluation and construction of lower extremity orthoses.
