Abstract: This article presents a novel 3D physics-based human gait model that allows to quantify and simulate the dynamic patterns of normal and pathological movements in the sagittal and coronal views, using an enhanced inverted pendulum approach. The method outperforms the classic planar representations that do not consider important gait phases like the double stance phase and the heelstrike, crucial in proper gait descriptions on clinical routine. The model was assessed by simulating gait cycles and comparing the obtained trajectories with actual normal and pathological gait data. Results showed that the normal and pathological kinematic patterns generated by our model are highly similar to the actual data, obtaining an accuracy of about 87%.
