Split-Belt Treadmill Walking Alters Lower Extremity Frontal Plane Mechanics

Jaimie A. Roper, Ryan T. Roemmich, Mark D. Tillman, Matthew J. Terza, and Chris J. Hass

may thus also affect the control of frontal plane motion. 7 However, it is unknown how frontal plane gait mechanics change when the speeds of each leg are manipulated independently rather than simultaneously. Split-belt treadmill walking is a rehabilitation intervention that allows researchers to

Fractal Dynamics, Variability, and Coordination in Human Locomotion

Scott W. Ducharme and Richard E.A. van Emmerik

investigate empirically the link between fractal scaling and adaptive gait performance ( Ducharme, 2017 ). Fifteen young, healthy adults walked on a split-belt treadmill that elicited gait asymmetries by moving treadmill belts at different speeds, thereby forcing participants to modify locomotor patterns

Electrical Stimulation of Distal Tibial Nerve During Stance Phase of Walking May Reverse Effects of Unilateral Paw Pad Anesthesia in the Cat

Hangue Park, Alexander N. Klishko, Kyunggeune Oh, Celina Zhang, Gina Grenga, Kinsey R. Herrin, John F. Dalton IV, Robert S. Kistenberg, Michel A. Lemay, Mark Pitkin, Stephen P. DeWeerth, and Boris I. Prilutsky

balance and interlimb coordination during quadrupedal locomotion ( Latash et al., 2020 ; Park et al., 2019 ). Unilateral paw pad anesthesia in cats walking on a split-belt treadmill with different speed ratios caused a shift of the center of mass (COM) toward the anesthetized side, a decrease in the

Autoregressive Modeling as Diagnostic Tool to Identify Postanterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction Limb Asymmetry

Kristin D. Morgan

; mass 66.8 [9.6] kg; age 21.1 [8.4] y; average running speed 2.7 [0.3] m/s) participants performed a running protocol on a split-belt treadmill. Each group needed 15 participants to identify a moderate effect (0.70) and achieve adequate statistical power ( α  = .05; 1 −  β  = 0.80). The participant

Changes in Spatiotemporal Measures and Variability During User-Driven Treadmill, Fixed-Speed Treadmill, and Overground Walking in Young Adults: A Pilot Study

Hillary H. Holmes, Randall T. Fawcett, and Jaimie A. Roper

walking was collected on the laboratory floor, and treadmill trials were performed on an instrumented split-belt treadmill (Bertec Co, Columbus, OH). User-Driven Treadmill The positional marker data were used to modulate velocities of the treadmill belts. The controller sent identical commands to both

Effects of Sport Participation on Gait Coordination, Symmetry, and Variability in Older Adults

Mohsen Shafizadeh, Stuart Bonner, Jonathan Fraser, Shahab Parvinpour, Mohsen Shabani, and Andrew Barnes

 al. ( 2005 ) showed that adults can adapt and store new interlimb coordination patterns after a short bout of training on a split-belt treadmill. This can explain why active older adults who practiced a variety of locomotor skills for a long period as usual walking or a combination of sport skills can
