A public data set of running biomechanics

Fukuchi RK, Fukuchi CA, Duarte M. (2017A public dataset of running biomechanics and the effects of running speed on lower extremity kinematics and kineticsPeerJ 5:e3298 https://doi.org/10.7717/peerj.3298

This data set comprises full raw and processed lower extremity gait kinematics and kinetics signals of 28 subjects in different file formats (c3d and txt). A file of metadata (in txt and xls formats), including demographics, running characteristics, foot-strike patterns, and muscle strength and flexibility measurements is provided. In addition, a model file (mdh) and a pipeline file (v3s) for the Visual3D software program are also provided.
The data were collected using a three-dimensional) motion-capture system and an instrumented treadmill while the subjects ran at 2.5 m/s, 3.5 m/s, and 4.5 m/s wearing standard neutral shoes.

The data set is available at Figshare (DOI: 10.6084/m9.figshare4543435) and described in the companion paper (Fukuchi RK, Fukuchi CA, Duarte M. (2017)).
