Abstract

Aim. This study was conducted to develop a generalized, multifactorial walking equation for estimating VO2 during treadmill walking at self-selected treadmill belt speeds. Also, the study sought to find the stride frequency (SF) and stride length (SL) combination which yielded the highest VO2.
