BACKGROUND: Although it is well established that lower limb joint angles adapt to walking at various speeds, limited research has examined the modifications in joint angular velocity. There is currently no normative dataset for joint angular velocity during walking, which would be useful to allow comparisons for patient cohorts. Additionally, understanding normal joint angular velocity may assist clinical assessment and treatment procedures to incorporate methods that replicate the movement speed of the lower limb joints during walking. RESEARCH QUESTION: This study aimed to examine lower limb joint angles and angular velocities in a healthy population walking at various gait speeds. METHODS..
