the sake of standing ( Haddad, Rietdyk, Claxton, & Huber, 2013 ). Rather, a human stance is typically integrated as part of a larger task, such as standing while reaching for an object or as part of gait. Nevertheless, we took the position that an upright quiet stance is an appropriate place to start

minimum toe clearance, longer stance, and increased stance variability for the OB adults during the secondary executive functions tests, the generalization of this finding to cell phone texting while walking seems premature. Based on these considerations, the purpose of the present study was to assess to

with major and minor categories inferred from keywords of the two participant groups responses. They were coded in terms of the specific phase, or aspect of the sprinting action that they referred to such as the “Stance Phase” or “Arm” movement. After a familiarisation stage, of reading all the survey

back foot (reverse group) at BC (Figure  1 , gray line). 5 Popular coaching literature for playing off uneven surfaces has been derived from playing and coaching experience. 12 , 14 Advice suggests that the golfer sets the body perpendicular to the slope and adopts a stance that is wider than normal

Kinovea, a meter stick served as a calibrated length to convert marker positions to meters. We analyzed Vicon and force platform data from heel strike to toe off for each trial in the same manner as the Kinovea data. We time normalized all data to 101 points/stance phase and calculated differences and

Visual inspection of the kinematic data divided each exercise into 4 phases: stance, early float, swing, and late

AFOV, will predict balance (measured with the Sit to Stand test and the One Legged Stance test), mobility (measured by the 5 Meter Walking test) and/or the fear of falling (measured with the Falls Efficacy Scale–International) in the older adult population. These balance and mobility assessment tools

The preferred limb was determined by asking each participant which limb was preferred to kick a ball. For each trial, data from one complete gait cycle on the target limb (stance and swing phases) were
