Abstract

The aim of the present study was to quantify the variability of segmental coordination, during the gait of young practitioners and sedentary people on different slopes (Horizon-tal, 8% and 10% Upward (Up) and Downward (Down) condi-tions) maintaining the self-selected speed (VAS), using the Vec-tor Coding technique. Thirty young people participated in this study, of which 15 were sedentary and 15 practiced physical ex-ercises at least one hour a day, three times a week. They per-formed a protocol of walking 1 minute on a treadmill on each inclination for data collection, in a randomized order. For the Pelvis-Thigh segment, the angles were computed during the four phases of the gait (first double support, single support, sec-ond double support and Swing), in the sagittal plane. The data were analyzed using a customized Matlab code. There were sig-nificant statistical differences for the Simple Support and Swing phases, with greater variability for the slope situation.
