Higher Impact Forces in Treadmill Running Are the Result of Flatter Foot Landing and a More Extended Knee

  SMM approaches model the leg as a single virtual leg segment,which depends on a combination of the geometry of the treadmill running system(i.e., the same leg length can actually be obtained by different joint configurations) and the local stiffness of the joints. Changes in joint kinematics at heel strike would have accompanied increased step length and decreased treadmill running step frequency and may partially be responsible for the larger fatigue-related LR values seen in our study. In support, a simulation study has identified that higher impact forces in treadmill running are the result of flatter foot landing and a more extended knee at heel strike.
