      Indices characterising the long-range temporal structure of walking stride interval (SI) variability such as Hurst exponent (H) and fractal dimension (D) may be used in addition to indices measuring the amount of variability like the coefficient of variation (CV). We assess the added value of the former indices in a clinical neurological context. Our aim is to demonstrate that they provide a clinical ...

      Quoique parfaitement maîtrisée chez l’Homme adulte en bonne santé, la marche bipède est un mécanisme d’une extraordinaire subtilité. D’un point de vue mécanique, la dynamique de la marche s’apparente à celle d’un pendule inversé, soit un système que, dès l’enfance, nous avons appris à stabiliser dans le cadre d’un mouvement quasi-périodique. Dans ce processus de stabilisation sont impliqués ...
    • Unstable footwear as a speed-dependent noise-based training gear to exercise inverted pendulum motion during walkingPeer reviewedOpen access

      Previous research on unstable footwear has suggested that it may induce mechanical noise during walking. The purpose of this study was to explore whether unstable footwear could be considered as a noise-based training gear to exercise body center of mass (CoM) motion during walking. Ground reaction forces were collected among 24 healthy young women walking at speeds between 3 and 6 km h−1 with ...
