Abstract: The objective of this thesis is to study the foot behavior during walking based on foot kinetics and kinematics, to extract useful foot dynamic features, and to model the foot dynamics. For the foot kinetics, some features are extracted from foot pressure to depict the whole foot pressure changes during walking. For the foot kinematics study, the foot motion features are extracted, including joint rotation angles between sub-defined foot segments, and some proposed functional angles for describing the whole foot physical features of walking. Extracted foot motion features are applied to designed different walking conditions for their effectiveness on describing foot behavior characteristics. Data of selected motion features are further processed with pattern recognition method for automatically classifying these walking conditions. Finally, to better understand the foot kinetics and kinematics during walking, the relationship between foot segment pressure/force and motion is studied through modeling of the multi-segment foot.
