adjective Referring to the gait period between foot flat and heel off, or the time at which the swing phase leg passes the stance phase leg and both feet are side by side.

To quantify the dance influence on the lower limbs the following parameters were calculated: right and left legs stride, stance and swing time's, knee maximum extension around heel strike, knee angle at double knee action, knee maximum flexion around mid-stance, knee maximum flexion at swing phase, hip joint maximum flexion and extension.
