length between IC of EACH foot
1 GC (gait cycle)
Gait Cycle (GC)
length between ICs of ONE foot
2 phases of gait
stance & swing
Stance Phase
period during which the foot is on the ground
Stance phase begins with
initial contact (IC)
Stance phase is ____% of the GC
Swing Phase
period during which the foot is in the air for limb advancement
Swing phase begins when
the foot is lifted from the floor (toe off)
Swing phase is ____% of the GC
each double limb stance is ____% of the GC while the single limb support is ____%
10%; 40%
average speed of walking
90y/min (94-men, 84 women)
As gait velocity increases
stance & swing times are shortened
What is eliminated when running?
double stance time
The 8 phases of gait allow the limb to accomplish these 3 goals
1. weight acceptance (WA)
2. single limb support (SLS)
3. limb advancement (LA)
WA has how many phases?
What are they?
2; initial contact (IC) & loading response (LR)
IC is ____% of the gait cycle
When does IC begin?
the moment the foot touches the floor - heel strike
LR is ____% of the gait cycle
When does IC begin?
with initial floor contact and continues until
the other foot is lifted for swing.
