Biomechanics and motor control of human gait: normal, elderly and pathological - 2nd edition

The following topics are considered in this book: gait analysis - considerations and terminology; temporal and stride measures; kinematics; kinetics; electromyography in human gait; balance and posture in human gait; degenerative gait in the elderly; assessment of pathological gait; and tables of selected curves. This book is intended to be a resource of normative data for both young adults and the fit and healthy elderly, and how to interpret and integrate those variables, especially as they relate to motor control of the skeletal system. It is aimed at rehabilitation personnel in a range of medical disciplines, researchers in basic human movement, and physical education researchers and teachers.
