Summary
Brief summary
purpose of the study: investigate the effects of different treadmill belt speeds on babies foot steps.
Hypothesys:
1. In the highest belt speeds, the foot steps look like mature gait in the kinematics parameters;
2. In the highest belt speeds, the descriptive, temporal and coordenatives variables of the babies foot steps look like the mature gait.
3. The highest belt speeds (0.22 and 0.28 m/s) are the best speeds to stimulate foot steps in babies in the treadmill
