Winter’s gait data in Excel form

Posted by

I have been working with Greg Borenstien for a while now on creating an open source tool for visualizing human movement data. You can see all his code here on github. We needed some data that had x, y, and z positions of human joints over time during a certain task, as well as angular velocities and joint torques. The only freely available source we found that had all of this kinematic and kinetic data was the appendix of Biomechanics and Motor Control of Human Movement by the late David Winter. There was a helpful thread on the Biomch-L forum that led to some digital versions of this appendix. However, there was never a comprehensive Excel file posted with all the data.
So, here it is: Winter_Appendix_data.

It’s just the right leg and a torso point, but Greg got a visualization up and running quickly:

  1. Thanks for your tips. One thing I’ve noticed is the fact banks in addition to financial institutions
    have in mind the spending practices of consumers
    and as well understand that most of the people max out there their own credit cards around the holiday seasons.

    They correctly take advantage of this specific fact and then start
    flooding your current inbox along with snail-mail box having hundreds
    of 0 APR card offers soon after the holiday season closes.
    Knowing that if you are like 98% of all American public, you’ll rush
    at the opportunity to consolidate personal credit card debt and
    shift balances towards 0 rate credit cards.

  2. The following time I learn a blog, I hope that it doesnt
    disappoint me as a lot as this one. I imply, I do know it was my option to
    read, but I really thought youd have one thing attention-grabbing to say.
    All I hear is a bunch of whining about one thing that
    you possibly can fix when you werent too busy on the lookout for
    attention.

  3. Thank you so much for the Excel version of the kinematic/kinetic data from D.A. Winter. I was gonna ask my friend to type out 12,000 numbers. But, thanks to you, saved me and my friend tons of time.
    Cheers!
