Title: Effects of lower limb fatigue on gait stability

Issue Date: 2012
Abstract: Gait analysis has become more established over the years as people become more concerned about the walking patterns of human beings and how external factors or health issues affect it. The purpose of this project is to establish a relationship between fatigue in the lower extremities and gait stability during walking. Muscle fatigue is associated with the loss of muscle performance during repeated or continuous activation where fatigability is calculated as the rate of decline in performance. In order to compare the difference in gait pattern between normal and fatigued conditions, there are two phases to the project; non-fatigued walking trials and fatigued walking trials.
