Fig. 3

Schematic diagram of analysis of the components of toe clearance. The two components of limb shortening (limb shortening by knee flexion and limb lengthening by ankle plantar flexion) and the three components of compensatory movements (non-paretic hip elevation, hip elevation due to pelvic obliquity, and foot elevation due to circumduction) are visualized. All indices were calculated from the difference in the vertical position of the markers between the paretic mid-stance and the paretic mid-swing
