    Aloha,

    "Gait timing was recorded via bilateral heel sensors and center-of-mass accelerations were measured by tri-axial accelerometers. Measures of statistical persistence, dynamic stability and gait variability were calculated. Our results showed that none of the considered gait measures were statistically different when comparing music with no-music trials."

    I often run and train with music on. I find it hard to believe that stride length and cadence was not influenced by the cadence of the music. Otherwise why do we have soldiers sing cadence while in tight formation to keep the fomation in formation??

    If you really want to mess up a group of soldiers just have them listen to a syncopated rythem with an odd time signiture.

    But these observations have been disproven by this study,,or have they?

    A Hui Hou,
    Steve
