Brief Summary:
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 or disease Intervention/treatment
Healthy Other: Different walk tests with an accelerometer device

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Estimated Enrollment : 300 participants
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Basic Science
Official Title: Assessment of Accelerometric Measurement Devices for Gait Analysis
Study Start Date : December 2011
Primary Completion Date : December 2015
Study Completion Date : December 2015

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


Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Accelerometric variables measured for each walk test [ Time Frame: At baseline ]
  2. Accelerometric variables measured for each walk test [ Time Frame: 1 hour after baseline ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Gait speed measured for each walk test [ Time Frame: At baseline ]
  2. Knee flexion and extension strength [ Time Frame: At baseline ]
  3. Gait speed measured for each walk test [ Time Frame: 1 hour after baseline ]
