Abstract:
The work presented in this thesis is concerned with the measurement of gait and posture parameters and their variation due to load weight, gender and load carriage duration when carrying military loads. In particular it examines the load carriage system as a whole rather than the backpack alone, which has been the concentration of previous biomechanical load carriage research.
