Abstract
Morphology and step-time parameters were recorded in 100 children between 15 and 36 months to investigate the relation between morphology and the walking pattern. A footfall method was used to register step-time parameters. Next, the differences in step-time parameters between four morphological classes were assigned with a multiple analysis of variance. We also performed stepwise linear regressions with a correction for walking experience, to examine the relation between detailed morphological measurements and step-time parameters. The results of these regressions show a significant relation between pelvis span/ankle spread ratio and the relative radii of gyration in the frontal plane of head and pelvis. It is hypothesized that the morphology of the head and pelvis plays a role in the coordination of the walking pattern.
