    Craig I'm a little confused as to who did this study? 3 years ago I was invited as Italian representative at the Brooks Symposium in Cologne and informed that Dr. Gert-Peter Bruggemann (http://www.esm2016.de/keynote-speaker-2016.html)and Dr. Joseph Hamil had done research at Cologne university and Massachusetts University and discovered the articular preferential pathway in which now the Brooks running shoes latest concept is based on. I see that Beno Nigg has been credited with this theory ? Can you clarify.

    The preferred motion pathway model is all Niggs.
    Bruggerman and Hamil have published research that the Brooks STride Signature is based on; and could also be interpreted using the preferred motion pathway
     
  5. Benno Nigg first discussed his theory about "preferred joint movement path" during running in an article from 2001 (Nigg BM: The role of impact forces and foot pronation: a new paradigm. Clin J Sport Med, 11:2-9, 2001). I don't agree with Benno's ideas completely but it does help explain some of the findings from the running biomechanics research literature.

    Do you have a reference for the Bruggemann and Hamill work, please?

    I am also interested in this excerpt (can't post link because I don't have 10 posts):

    "Although the general mechanical structure of knee and ankle joints is universal, there is endless variation in the makeup of these joints–from the flexibility of ligaments to the very shape of one’s bones. These specific, and highly individual, characteristics will determine the way that your body moves."

    Does anyone know of any papers that have examined the relationship between these anatomical constraints and running/walking gait patterns?
