The purpose of this study was to describe the velocity of the center of pressure during walking in a sample of young, healthy individuals. The velocity of the center of pressure was recorded in 60 subjects while they walked barefoot over a floor-mounted pressure platform. The results of this study indicate that the velocity of the center of pressure follows a predictable pattern during the stance phase of walking. Intraclass correlation coefficients calculated to measure between-trial reliability for specific parameters of the velocity of the center of pressure ranged from 0.361 to 0.912. These study results suggest that velocity of the center of pressure may be a useful measurement in future gait research.
