“Everyday Activity Shoes: a Quantification of Impact Forces While Walking”
This study aims to directly compare traditional everyday activity shoes (ASICS, Nike) with a shoe created to be flatter, less cushioned, and with less cradling of the foot (OESH shoe).
Subjects will be asked to walk across the gait laboratory floor at their self-selected walking speed. They will complete a 3-5 minute warm up period, as it was found to produce stable estimates of kinetic parameter mean values during treadmill activity. The positions of each marker will be recorded through the motion capture system. Ground reaction force will be obtained in real time from the gait laboratory force plates as marker dimensions are recorded. For walking data, two trials of 15 secon ...read more on ClinicalTrials.org
