Abstract

In this research, we have attempted to find out and compare selected characteristics of gait in men and women; 20 men and 20 women aged 30-39 were observed. The average age of men was 34.0 years, of women 34.1 years respectively. For measuring, pressure shoe insoles were used (Pedar Mobile, Novel Munich, 99 sensors, 100 Hz). Each person had three attempts: two trial attempts, the third one was measured. For observation, we selected three stances of each leg, always between the third and eighth stride. Significant differences between men and women were found in stance duration in the active part of stance while the passive part of stance was similar. With applied force (F1, F2, F3) during stance, after recalculating per a kilogram of weight, no statistically significant differences were found. No significant differences between the right and left legs were found either.
