The Structure of Variability in Human Walking and Running is Speed-Dependent

Jordan, Kimberlee1; Newell, Karl M.2

Abstract

The variability of gait in human walking and running is not random but shows self-similarity that is dependent on the speed of locomotion. The strength of the long-range correlations for each gait pattern follows a U-shaped function that is centered on the respective preferred speed of locomotion.
