This algorithm could reveal synergies in the following two matrices: [C.sub.i](t), which denotes the activation pattern of each synergy during five gait cycles (n x t matrix; n = number of synergies, t = time point), and [W.sub.i], which represents the weightings of the muscles involved in each synergy (m x n matrix; m = eight muscles of the paretic leg).
