The duration of the turning part of the task was determined from the moment of the toe-off of the second step to the toeoff of the fourth step (Figure 2).
In addition, increased knee extension angle during toe-off was found in the high speed compared with the regular speed condition.
This design guides a smoother toe-off and overall ride, with durability and traction infused into the heel and forefoot.
Internationally-recognised basics of normal human gait, which include the ability of the Claimant to heel-strike, midstance, and toe-off with either foot can be eyeballed' within a simple clinic setting, and used as a reference-point to describe an abnormal gait pattern, if indeed an abnormal gait pattern is present.
Angles were calculated at initial foot strike and foot liftoff, or toe-off. Step length (distance traveled by 5th metatarsal from foot strike to toe-off), duration of ground contact, and foot strike pattern were also recorded.
Saute trials were scored for time at movement start and end, time at toe-off, and time at toe-down.
In particular, the upper body is too often ignored as runners focus on footstrike, midstance, stride length and toe-off. Here we look in detail at running form from toe-off through the swing-through phase, including the upper body movements and how they coordinate with the lower body ones.
We used this approach as our automatic event detection algorithm because of its ease of use and because it ensures the local minima in toe-ground clearance that occurs at or just after toe-off would not be identified in error as the point of MTC.
WABIAN-2R has also achieved a human-like walk with the knee-stretched, heel-contact, and toe-off motion by utilizing a foot mechanism with a passive toe joint [2].
The CT was defined and calculated as the time between initial contact with the ground and the last frame of contact before toe-off. The FT was defined and calculated as the time between toe-off and subsequent initial contact of the contralateral foot.
We can postulate that a flexion point proximal may jeopardize the shoe's stability and may exacerbate the problem of efficient toe-off observed in patients with chronic gout," the researchers noted.
Directionally positioned blades maximize cutting and allow for quick changes of direction, while secondary toe traction provides added toe-off power for those first critical steps.
