    • Coordination of turning when standing and walking in healthy older adults and persons with Parkinson’s disease 

      Akram, Sakineh Beigom (University of Waterloo, 2008-10-23)
      It is difficult to think of any activity that does not require some degree of turning. Despite the prevalence of turning in daily activities and the challenge it poses to mobility-impaired individuals such as those with ...
    • Determinants of Increased Energy Cost in Prosthetic Gait 

      Peasgood, Michael (University of Waterloo, 2004)
      The physiological energy requirements of prosthetic gait in lower-limb amputees have been observed to be significantly greater than those for able-bodied subjects. However, existing models of energy flow in walking have ...
    • A Foot Placement Strategy for Robust Bipedal Gait Control 

      Wight, Derek L. (University of Waterloo, 2008-05-23)
      This thesis introduces a new measure of balance for bipedal robotics called the foot placement estimator (FPE). To develop this measure, stability first is defined for a simple biped. A proof of the stability of a simple ...
    • Mechanics and Control of Human Balance 

      Millard, Matthew (University of Waterloo, 2011-04-18)
      A predictive, forward-dynamic model and computer simulation of human gait has important medical and research applications. Most human simulation work has focused on inverse dynamics studies to quantify bone on bone forces ...
    • Mindful Physical Activity: A Pilot Study In The Context Of Walking To Public Transit 

      Christidis, Tanya (University of Waterloo, 2010-09-17)
      Objective: To describe the effect of mindfulness on perceived health, perceptions of transit walking and transit walking behaviours by using qualitative and quantitative methods in hopes of assessing the feasibility of ...
    • On Walking 

      Neault, Sarah Michelle (University of Waterloo, 2010-12-03)
      Imagine the anatomy of architecture as a complex system, where the form is the result of generative processes, the material properties of the components, and their patterns of assembly. Within this paradigm, surface is ...
