Sample text

Groups or bundles of muscle fibers make up muscle fascicles, each surrounded by perimysium. Multiple groups of muscle fascicles, enclosed by enveloping epimysium, constitute a whole muscle (Fig. 2). The geometric arrangement of muscle fascicles is key to the contractile (and thus functional) properties of a muscle. Muscles may be formed by fascicles grouped in parallel, oblique (pennate), or tapering (fusiform or spindle) architecture. One or more motor nerves control each skeletal muscle. Ultimately each muscle fiber receives innervation at a single point.

The first double-support period occurs immediately after initial contact and the second just prior to foot-off. Loading response is a period of deceleration when the shock of impact is absorbed. The initial doublesupport period is followed by a period of single support, comprising about 40% of the cycle. 42 IC LR MST (double support) TST PS (double support) Fig. 10 The stance phase of gait. Stance phase constitutes roughly 60% of the cycle and is divided into five subphases: initial contact (IC), loading response (LR), mid-stance (MST), terminal stance (TST), and pre-swing (PS).

12) (Vaughan 2003, Kuo 2007). Swing Swing phase constitutes about 40% of the gait cycle. The purpose of swing is to (1) advance the limb, (2) provide foot clearance, (3) allow variation in cadence, and (4) conserve energy. During swing phase, the limb behaves like a compound pendulum. As a result, our speed and cadence depend largely on the mass distribution of the shank (Hicks et al. 1985, Tashman et al. 1985) (Fig. 13). That is, we tend to select a walking speed at which our limb swings with only a small amount of extraneous muscle action.
