Biomechanical Analysis of Intra-Cycle Gait Structure of Female Athletes
Amar Kumar  | Sukanta Goswami
Abstract: This article summarizes the current literature regarding the analysis of walking gait and compared the intra-cycle stages of walking i. e. the difference between selected biomechanical variables in the intra-cycle stages of walking. Five randomly selected female volleyball players aged 18-22 years and who participated in regular physical activity. To analyze the raw data the kinematic variables and stride length Kinovea software was used. Segmentation method was employed in order to assess to the centre of gravity of the body in the time walking stages. The independent t- test was used to measure the difference between two different stages of a complete gait cycle with the selected biomechanical variables. The level of significance was set as 0.05. Result of the study revealed that the step length differs significantly in intra-cycle stages of walking along with shoulder joint. It may be concluded that pattern of physical activity might have an impact on intra gait cycles. The current state of knowledge is presented as it fits in the context of the history of analysis of movement.
