...Delyle T. Polet; Ryan T. Schroeder; John E. A. Bertram ABSTRACT In gravity below Earth-normal, a person should be able to take higher leaps in running. We asked 10 subjects to run on a treadmill in five levels of simulated reduced gravity and optically tracked centre-of-mass kinematics. Subjects...

... different effect of reduced gravity on human walking and running. Such insight changes the interpretation of fundamental features of leg function, such as push-off timing and the role of elastic deflection during stance. As strongly argued by Alexander ( Alexander, 2001 ), if management of energy...

... number ignores elastic forces that are crucial for understanding running gaits. We used simulated reduced gravity as a tool for exploring dynamic similarity in human running. We simulated reduced gravity by applying a nearly constant upward force to the torsos of our subjects while they ran...

...Rodger Kram; Antoinette Domingo; Daniel P. Ferriss ABSTRACT We investigated the effect of reduced gravity on the human walk–run gait transition speed and interpreted the results using an inverted-pendulum mechanical model. We simulated reduced gravity using an apparatus that applied a nearly...
