Minimum toe clearance in healthy subjects and hemiparetic patients. A,B: The trajectory of the toe on the treadmill. a representative toe trajectory of healthy subjects. The white arrow indicates the point of minimum toe clearance. b Toe trajectory of hemiparetic patients without a point of minimum toe clearance. c Schematic diagram showing the length of hip–toe–ground line during the swing phase. The hip–toe–ground distance would be shortest at the time when the toe crosses the vertical line through the hip (a > b)
