Thank you for re-examining this aspect of gait. I have not dropped the determinants in my gait lectures as I believe that they are very useful in the qualitative observation of gait. I admit I use the CoM terminology (that will change this year, thank you) but in a way to look for abrupt or exaggerated changes in the CoM path vertically and horizontally.
I wil be looking forward to further posts.
thank you for a nice post on this classic paper. I wonder if it is the words “of low amplitude” that, in part, explains the ‘minimize center of mass movements = low energy’ interpretation? :
“translating the centre of gravity through a smooth undulating pathway of low amplitude the human body conserves energy”
