The purpose of this paper is to perform a biomechanical analysis of a human normal cycle gait of some subjects with a body weight between 55 and 90 kg. The biomechanical analysis is presented to determining ground reaction forces (Fx, Fy, Fz) and moments (Mx, My, Mz) during normal human walking based only on anthropometrical data and a force plate. The pressures sensed by the transducers during a movement are captured on computer, and a graphical display is typically used to provide an
