altered kinematic or kinetic variables, 11 vertical head accelerations have generally remained stable when running. It is then suggested that multiple parameters, that is, stride length, stride rate, footstrike patterns, and shock absorption by the tibia, adapt to maintain head stability. 9 , 10 , 12

stride length and moderately with stride frequency. 3 These findings are expected because tibia peak positive acceleration was found to increase with speed 3 , 4 while the body was found to respond to varying impact situations and sufficiently attenuate the impact shock to maintain constant head

synergistically with other anterior hip muscles to counterbalance the posterior pelvic tilt and to provide stability to the anterior hip joint. Posterior GMin is also highly active in this exercise, perhaps reflecting its contribution to femoral head stability in single-limb support. 4 , 13 The effectiveness of

particular focus on (1) the coordination and frequency couplings of the arms and legs, and (2) the role of the upper body in producing stable gaits, in particular in relation to how head stability is accomplished. An important focus in the literature on the function of arm movement in human walking has been
