Figure 2

Trunk motion in the coronal plane. After beginning the single limb support phase (a), the trunk moves to the contralateral side (f and s). This motion decelerates slightly (s) while approaching the heel strike of the opposite foot (c, gait cycle 50%), which appears to be an effort to reduce the impact of the heel strike. The difference between the slopes of f and s represents the difference in angular velocity.
