Thirty strides were located in the mid-section of the recorded signal using the ‘peakfinder’ Matlab function with a minimum peak distance of 50 samples for fast walking speed trials and 75 samples for normal walking speed trials. Upward and downward peak detection threshold was set as:Threshold=rmsVT-0.05, where VT is the acceleration along the vertical measurement axis. To facilitate a more accurate peak detection a 5th order zero-phase digital band pass filter [0.5–10 Hz] was applied. This filter was used for stride detection only. A single stride was the period between consecutive heel strikes of the same limb (i.e., signified by every second acceleration peak in the VT signal, counting from the end of the first stride)56.
