The Study's Underlying Assumption Is Running on a Treadmill Is Similar to Overground Running

Writer:realleaderfitnessDate:2017-2-16 15:30:18
An underlying assumption when using a treadmill for running analysis is that running on a treadmill is similar to overground running. A comparison of spatiotemporal variables during overground and treadmill running was made in several studies. During treadmill running, runners tend to run with a shortened stride length and an increased stride rate. Despite of these spatio-temporal differences, only small differences in knee flexion and a more flattened landing style during treadmill running were observed. An overground-treadmill comparison with respect to GRFs was made in only two studies. No systematic errors or extraor- dinary differences in vertical GRFs were found. Impact peaks and loading rates, however, have not been studied in these previous studies.
The purpose of this study was to determine the valid-ity of a custom made instrumented force measuring treadmill to measure vertical GRF parameters during running. Validation of the treadmill was performed by comparing overground and treadmill measured vertical GRF parameters during running.
