  • Description:
    Traditionally, gait analysis models the trunk as one rigid body segment. This approach has limitations; it does not capture all the movements of this area of the body throughout locomotion. Lower-extremity-gait kinematics do not routinely change in healthy non-elderly adults in different decades of life; however, it is unknown if trunk kinematics will be altered during different activities of daily living as a function of age. The purpose of this study was to determine if a previously validated multi-segmented trunk model would detect trunk movement variations in non-elderly healthy adults in different decades of life. Thirty-four non-elderly healthy adults in various decades of life (20-29 years, 30-39 years, 40-49 years, and 50-59 years) completed two tasks of ambulatory daily living (level walking and stair descent). Trunk maximum angle during the gait cycle, timing of the trunk maximum angle during the gait cycle and trunk range of motion were examined using analysis of variance procedures. Findings are that age group did not affect the trunk kinematics of individuals in different decades of life, but that may not represent the experiences of elderly individuals.
