Title
A full-body motion capture gait dataset of 138 able-bodied adults across the life span and 50 stroke survivors

Abstract
This reference dataset contains biomechanical data of 138 able-bodied adults (21–86 years) and 50 stroke survivors walking bare-footed at their preferred speed. It is unique due to its size, and population, including adults across the life-span and over 70 years, as well as stroke survivors. Full-body kinematics (PiG-model), kinetics and muscle activity of 14 back and lower limbs muscles was collected with a Vicon motion capture system, ground-embedded force plates, and a synchronized surface EMG system. The data is reliable to compare within and between groups as the same methodology and infrastructure were used to gather all data. Both source files ( C3D ) and post-processed ready-to-use stride-normalized kinematics, kinetics and EMG data ( MAT- file, Excel file) are available, allowing high flexibility and accessibility of analysis for both researchers and clinicians. These records are valuable to examine ageing, typical and hemiplegic gait, while also offering a wide range of reference data which can be utilized for age-matched controls during normal walking.
