biomechanical perspective, an exoskeleton that assists at one lower limb joint but not others should alter energetic cost differently depending on the locomotor task. A large majority of the total mechanical work performed by muscles during a step can be calculated as the summation of positive and negative

mastered their fundamental locomotor skills of skipping, sliding, hopping, running, jumping, leaping, and galloping before they enter elementary school ( Clark et al., 2002 ). Later we include the skills that are performed in timed situations, like swimming and running, as well as skills that are performed

However, locomotor patterns adopted at preferred speeds are unlikely to reflect genuine age-related constraints on walking performance, particularly those thought to restrict push

Development of fundamental motor skills and patterns (FMSP) is crucial to participation in regular, vigorous physical activity. Competence in locomotor as well as object control skills (OCS) promotes involvement in activities of childhood and is requisite to successful participation in sports

Thus, the design and intent of these various assessment protocols make it difficult to track changes in motor competence across time, particularly into adulthood. Similar to
