step length

step length

When an individual is walking, the distance between the first point of contact of a limb with the ground and the first point of contact of the limb on the opposite side, often but not always the distance from the back of one heel strike to the back of the other.

Y-PAD subjects exhibited increased walking velocity (p = 0.001), stride length (p = 0.005), step length (p = 0.002), and stance phase percent of the total gait cycle (p = 0.03) compared with O-PAD subjects.
At study [5] the interval between probes was chosen to be 5 m, and the source [6] reveals the 6 m step length. Assessment of the heat exchanger length as determined with the solar collectors' area, and therefore, their thermal capacity estimation, were effected only for single-probe ground storage [7].
When passing automatic doors, the step length around the door is shorter than manual door.
The study noted that previous research has found that wearing high heels can significantly reduce ankle muscle movement, step length, total range of movement and balance control.
High heels also inhibit movement of the ankle muscles and reduce step length and overall range of motions.
where [x.sub.k], [[alpha].sub.k], and [d.sub.k] are current iterative point, positive step length, and search direction, respectively.
It not only detects the sway, but it also delivers information about stride length, step length, foot angle, step time (how fast you're walking) and swing time (how long your leg is in the air during a step).
where [[alpha].sub.k] is a step length, and [B.sub.k] is a diagonal approximation of the inverse Jacobian matrix which can be updated in each iterations.
Second, do movement behaviors, measured as step length and turn angles, differ between the edge and the center of the patch?
"The subjects walk on a mat instrumented with sensors while the mat records step length and walking rhythm, essentially the space and time parameters of walking, so that we can analyze a person's gait and the effects of light touch on it."
When attached to your shoe, the wearable is supposed to track metrics such as foot strike pattern and impact, swing angle, average range, step length, cadence and ground contact time.
Step length was defined as the distance between a hind paw strike and the strike of the opposite hind paw.
