Table 4 Mean coefficient of variation for gait measurements in the study population

From: The reproducibility of acquiring three dimensional gait and plantar pressure data using established protocols in participants with and without type 2 diabetes and foot ulcers

Variable Left limb CV (%) Right limb CV (%)
Cadence 0.1 0.1
Walking speed 0.5 0.6
Stride time 0.2 0.3
Step time 0.5 0.5
Opposite foot off 0.7 0.8
Opposite foot contact 0.1 0.1
Foot off time 0.1 0.2
Single support time 0.8 0.8
Double support time 1.3 1.9
Stride length 0.4 0.6
Step length 0.6 0.9
  1. Legend: CV = Coefficient of variation reported as a percentage. Cadence refers to number of steps per minute. The two measurements reported as <0.1 contained CVs which were below 0.001. A pre-established level of <10 % was used as a threshold for determining appropriate variance in gait measures
