Abstract

In this research the effect of ground slipperiness and depth of shoe grooves on knee joint forces and torques are tested and analyzed. 22 male students are used as test subjects, and were asked to walk with two pairs of shoes with different groove depths and on different ground surface conditions. Kinematics of their walking and ground reaction forces were measured by motion analysis system
and force plate respectively. Forces and torques on knee joint is then calculated by inverse dynamics. At the end, results of tests are analyzed to conclude the effect of
slipperiness and shoe groove depth on gate parameters.
