Spatio-temporal parameters of gait in adolescent, youth and middle age women
The purpose of the research was to determination of the basic spatio-temporal parameters usual gait in freely chosen rate in adolescent, youth and middle age women. The study was carried out using an automated system GAITRite. In a study on a voluntary basis were attended students of the Vinnitsa Medical College. We investigated 127 healthy women 15-43 years (mean age was 19,7±6,55 years), who were divided into three age groups: adolescent, youth and middle age women. Studied at the time of the investigation had no injuries and denied the existence of diseases that could affect the formation of the normal gait act. They carried out two runs on the track GAITRite in freely chosen rate. The following parameters of gait were determined: Step Length, Stride Length, Step/Extremity Ratio, Toe In/Toe Out, H-H Base of Support, Velocity, Step Time, Gait Cycle, Cadence, Single Support, Double Support, Swing Time, Distance. Gait "normality" confirmed by integral index of gait "normality" (Functional Ambulation Profile - FAP).
