Nut, spring and ankle power: mechanical power of the nut (dotted), the spring (dashed) and the ankle (solid) for the mean of multiple strides using the Walk-Run ankle (red) and the mean of up to 21 able-bodied reference subjects (gray). Data is presented for the gait cycle of 1.6 m/s walking, 2.6 and 4.0 m/s running. The take off is indicated by a vertical line. As detected locomotion speed for running was different from the theoretical model and the treadmill speed, differences in power curves are to some extend caused by changes in the interpolated nut trajectories
