Joint kinetics recombined from the PCSs of PCV 2 The definitions of the abbreviations in the central tendency graph are as follows: Post.: Posterior. Tilt, Ant.: Anterior Tilt, Flex.: Flexion, Ext.: Extension, D.F.: Dorsi-flexion, P.F.: Plantar flexion, L.U.: Left Side Up, R.U.: Right Side Up, Add.: Adduction, Abd.: Abduction, I.R.: Internal Rotation, E.R.: External Rotation, Ever.: Eversion, Inv.: Inversion. Gray high-lighted area indicates the instance of the toe off (transition of stance phase and swing phase). It has certain width because present study did not separate stance phase from swing phase at the time-normalization procedure. Because there is a significant negative correlation between the PCVs and the Two-Step test scores, +3SD waveform can be interpreted as representing an exaggerated gait pattern consistent with older people with low scores on the Two-Step test, whereas -3SD waveform can be interpreted as representing an exaggerated gait pattern consistent with older people with high scores on the Two-Step test. a sagittal hip moment, b frontal hip moment, c horizontal hip moment, d sagittal knee moment, e frontal knee moment, f horizontal knee moment, g sagittal ankle moment, h frontal ankle moment, i horizontal ankle moment
