Using Gold-standard Gait Analysis Methods to Assess Experience Effects on Lower-limb Mechanics During Moderate High-heeled Jogging and Running Yan Zhang1,2,3, Meizi Wang1, Jan Awrejcewicz3, Gusztáv Fekete4, Feng Ren1, Yaodong Gu1,2 1Faculty of Sports Science, Ningbo University, 2Research Academy of Grand Health Interdisciplinary, Ningbo University, 3Department of Automation, Biomechanics and Mechatronics, The Lodz University of Technology, 4Savaria Institute of Technology, Eötvös Loránd University This study investigated lower-limb kinematics and ground reaction force (GRF) during moderate high-heeled jogging and running. Subjects were divided into groups of experienced wearers and inexperienced wearers. A three-dimensional motion analysis system with a configured force platform captured lower-limb joint movements and GRF.
