... with previous results, net metabolic power was reduced during split-belt adaptation, but changes in mediolateral dynamic balance control were not correlated with the reduction of net metabolic power during split-belt adaptation. Overall, this study has shown that a complementary mechanism of relative foot...

... of metabolic power, including separate contributions for scuffing the foot on the ground and for lifting the foot higher. Here, clearance is treated as if there were a single range of positive to negative foot lift, the latter causing foot scuff. The expected cost is the sum of these contributions, mediated...

... and wings calculated from wing beat kinematics. Metabolic power was not sensitive to uncertainty in the value of efficiency when estimated from heat transfer modelling. A change in the assumed value of whole animal efficiency from 0.19 to 0.07 (the range of estimates in previous studies) only altered...
