  Purpose
The objective of this study is to obtain normative accelerometry data during the six minute walk test and a 30 second walk test on healthy subjects in order to determine the accelerometric variables that are the most relevant to describe gait disorders in patient populations. Secondary objectives of this study are to investigate the impact of walking speed and muscle strength on the accelerometric parameters, to assess the reproducibility of the method and to compare accelerometric data obtained with two different devices.

Condition Intervention
Healthy
Other: Different walk tests with an accelerometer device

Further study details as provided by Institut de Myologie, France:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Accelerometric variables measured for each walk test [ Time Frame: At baseline ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Accelerometric variables measured for each walk test [ Time Frame: 1 hour after baseline ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Gait speed measured for each walk test [ Time Frame: At baseline ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Knee flexion and extension strength [ Time Frame: At baseline ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Gait speed measured for each walk test [ Time Frame: 1 hour after baseline ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Intervention Details:
    Other: Different walk tests with an accelerometer device
    Subjects will performed three walk tests of 50 meter at different speeds, a six minute walk test, a walking test of 30 seconds then a test to measure the maximum force of extension and knee flexion on each leg. The walk tests will be performed with the accelerometer device (Locometrix) worn in a belt
