Abstract

Abstract: This study compared gait parameters and lower-limb muscle activity between the optimum and maximum gait velocities to clarify their characteristics. The activities of the rectus femoris, long head of the biceps femoris, tibialis anterior, and medial head of the gastrocnemius, in addition to gait parameters, were measured during gait using a surface electromyograph and gait analysis device, respectively, involving 15 healthy adult females.
