The three-dimensional interaction among foot and ankle kinetics and the proximal joints is not well defined in the current literature. No dynamic ambulatory models currently exist to examine and define the complex interactions among the distal and proximal lower extremity joints. The focus of this work is the definition and development of a suitable kinetic model for examining these parameters during normal adult gait.
