摘要

The purpose of this study was to analyze the kinematics and EMG of backward walking on treadmill. There were sixteen health male subjects, aged 21-29 years, volunteered to participate in this study. The Infortronic Ultrafex Gait Analysis System was used to record the data of the five different walking patterns, including forward walking on level ground (F.W.), backward walking on level ground (B.W.), forward walking on treadmill (F.W.T.), backward walking on treadmill (B.W.T.), and backward walking on inclined 10% treadmill (B.W.T.I.). In this study, we found that backward walking on inclined treadmill was the most stable pattern and the increased average muscle activity was noted. Backward walking on inclined treadmill may serve to further enhance the positive effects of backward walking on a flat surface.
