ANALYZING GAIT USING THE DYNAMICS OF A MATHEMATICAL MODEL?
DRASSA Journal of Development and Research for Sport Science Activities
Athletes need modeling and feedback to reach for their maximum performance, computer simulation is not the only nontraditional modern development in biomechanics. Dynamical system approach (DSA) is another fascinating enlargement in the field of biomechanics. The purpose of this study was to investigate the practicability of this assessment by showing the dynamics of the movement and the differences in movement patterns by comparing the frequency patterns of the gait of the different subject
... ifferent subject groups. Three different groups were examined in this study. These groups were: control patient group (CP), senior group (S), and sport student group (SS). The CP-group was composed of (9)patients ,the S-group and the SS-group had no neurophysiological diseases and were composed of 17 senior. Results showed that the S-group and the SS-group resembled patterns and data with the difference of higher peaks at the beginning and a higher gradient between the first peaks for the seniors. The CP-group shows much lower peaks in the beginning and higher peak values to the end, also the differences between both sides of the body are obvious in comparison to the normal gait of the SS-group.
