Reduced mechanical output of the plantarflexor muscles during push-off, and thus reduced propulsive forces, are hallmark biomechanical features of elderly gait as well as gait pathology, such as that following a stroke. 2 , 3

The static joint markers were used to establish joint centers and segment coordinate systems for both movement tasks. The static

, Watertown, MA) were used to obtain 3-dimensional (3D) kinematics and GRFs, respectively, during walking. The 3D kinematics were tracked using retroreflective markers applied to the pelvis and right leg of each participant. Thermoplastic shells with at least 3 noncollinear markers were secured to the pelvis
