Abstract

Ten healthy subjects ascended and descended stairs at three different slopes. Ground reaction and kinematic data were measured. Hip, knee, and ankle joint powers were computed and compared with level walking data. It was observed that joint power production and absorption significantly depends on the staircase slope.
