Author(s): Dr. Raghvendra Shukla and Dhananjoy Shaw

Abstract:
A study conducted with the objective to comparison between female and male in regard to selected gait variables while walking with fast speed. The study was delimited to female and male subjects (N=75), age ranging from 17 to 25 years. The study delimited to selected spatio-temporal gait variables namely as Gait Line Length (mm), Contact Time (sec), First and Second Peak Force (N), First and Second Peak Pressure (N/cm2), First and Second Peak Force Time (ms), First and Second Peak Pressure Time (ms), Difference between Peak Force Time (ms), Difference between Peak Pressure Time (ms). The Data Recording and quantification were administered by Pressure Plate from Zebris with model FDM-S. Collected data were computed with mean, standard deviation and independent t-test. There was significant difference between female and male while walking with fast speed in regard to selected gait variables namely as Gait Line Length of Left and Right Foot(mm), Contact Time of Left and Right Foot (sec), First and Second Peak Force of Left and Right Foot (N), First and Second Peak Pressure of Left and Right Foot (N/cm2), First and Second Peak Force Time of Left and Right Foot (ms), First and Second Peak Pressure Time of Left and Right Foot (ms), Difference between Peak Force Time of Left and Right Foot (ms), Difference between Peak Pressure Time of Left and Right Foot (ms) at 0.05 level of significance. Out of selected 20 variables 08 variables are found significant. Hence, we can concluded that there was significant difference between female and male while walking with fast speed.
