    The tests consisted of walking and running at various speeds on a treadmill under conditions of earth gravity and of simulated lunar gravity which was pro- duced by using the inclined-plane technique discussed in references 1 to 3. The equip- ment employed to produce the Simulated lunar gravity imposes some constraints on the 3.   walking gait cycle of human explained by M E to use this video contact here at [email protected] Human gait refers to locomotion achieved through the movement of human limbs. Human.

      Introduction. Customary gait speed in older adults is a good measure of overall walking performance. In general, it reflects energetic efficiency, muscle strength, balance control and endurance [].Self-chosen usual gait speed requires the selection of a certain stride length, joint angular displacement [2, 3] and the appropriate joint torque and power [4–6].   In quadrupeds, gaits are typically categorized into walking and running (Hildebrand , ; Cavagna et al. ) as well as into symmetrical and asymmetrical gaits (Hildebrand , ).Walking and running types of gaits have been distinguished using one or several of the following features.

      Walking uses an inverted pendulum mechanism, and running is a bouncing gait with greater possibility of elastic energy exchange. The basic mechanics of walking and running are shared by bipeds and quadrupeds, and gait-specific energy use has also been described in horses [2,17] and two smaller quadrupeds [18,19]. Human gait refers to locomotion achieved through the movement of human limbs. Human gait is defined as bipedal, biphasic forward propulsion of center of gravity of the human body, in which there are alternate sinuous movements of different segments of the body with least expenditure of energy. Different gait patterns are characterized by differences in limb-movement patterns, .

Remarkably, however, the transition from walking to running can be gradual at lower simulated gravity levels (e.g., at the gravity level of the Moon, Fig. 5). Comparative measurements of man's walking and running gaits in earth and simulated lunar gravity.

To simulate effects of Mars (40% g) and Moon (20% g) gravities we used a specialized treadmill that simulated hypogravity with lower body positive pressure (Alter-G treadmill, P, Alter-G, Freemont, CA).

Gait. This walking pace (± m/s) was used for the subsequent experimental conditions that were collected on another day. Although this walking pace may seem slow for Earth gravity, walking analysis of Apollo video has shown very slow walking and running speeds during EVAs.

Under Earth's gravity acceleration walking was predicted as the preferred gait mode. Notice, however, that the gait at m/s has a short double stance phase, refer to the horizontal bars indicating foot-ground contact in Fig. 3, Fig. 4, and a slight increase in speed would probably lead to running with the appearance of a flight Moon's gravity.

The energy cost of walking and running not only varies with speed but with the type of ground surface and other environmental factors such as temperature, humidity, and wind.

But when the gait is irregular, both walking and running share a common feature: Both movements will cost more in energy. The worse or more inefficient the gait, the. Participants completed four walking trials and four running trials. Walking trials were at, and m s −1.

18 In addition, as the speed of movement increases, the function of the muscles changes somewhat, and their electromyographic activity may increase or decrease. Locomotion efficiency, i.e., the ratio between W TOT performed and energy consumed (C) increases with speed at all gravities in every gait ; however, average efficiency decreases up to 49% (P Earth in walking, running, and skipping, respectively, as gravity gets small.

Loading Response: Weight is rapidly transferred onto the outstretched limb, the first period of double-limb support. Midstance: The body progresses over a single, stable limb.On Earth, walking and running gaits are usually adopted for different speeds of locomotion, with a preferred transition occurring at ∼2 m/s (or ∼7 km/h) (typically corresponding to Fr = ).

The transition from walking to running is related to metabolic energy expenditure (32, 47).
