How much hip flexion/extension do we need in normal gait?

flexion = 30 degrees during IC and TSw
extension = 20 degrees during TS


Why do we get 10 degrees more extension at the thigh (20 degrees) vs at the hip (10 degrees)?

because of the anterior tilt and external rotation of the pelvis, allowing increased extension of the thigh


Eversion peaks during what part of the gait cycle?

early midstance
