This was clear and concise information, thank you. Great work! I am looking forward to reading part 2. I am hoping you will apply the assessments to the "why" we are created this way.

Evan (and Steven), Excellent article, you guys do an excellent job of clearly and concisely packaging gait biomechanics. One thing I would have liked to see you guys touch on (and this may be a naive statement as you may cover this in subsequent parts to this article) is WHY exactly do we move the way that we move. In my opinion, the most effecient and beneficial way to look at biomechanics is from a developmental perspective. Why did we evolve to move the way that we did? What particular movements or phases of our gait pattern are most important for survival and procreation, as these are the driving forces of natural selection. They may not be as important in our current environment for literal survival, but as far as the body is concerned, they are indeed. Again, great article, I really loved it...looking forward to the next installment.
