Abstract

The study of the interactions among elements of a system is decisive to understanding their behavior patterns. The knowledge of the details of human motion allows physiotherapists to propose prevention and rehabilitation programs, as well as to identify movements that could lead to an injury. This work examines Partial Directed Coherence measures to determine the direction of the influences, throughout the stance phase only, among kinematic joints data acquired during the running activity. Five channels of the ankle, knee, hip, pelvis and trunk kinematic data were processed in each of the three anatomical planes, sagittal, frontal and transverse. These analysis suggested that the ankle joint receives a intense proximal to distal influence, whereas the knee, hip, pelvis and trunk joints presents a predominance of distal to proximal interaction.
