A public data set of running biomechanics

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)).
