Estimation of ground reaction force waveforms during fixed pace running outside the laboratory

Wearable sensors are being used extensively for the collection of human running biomechanical data outside of the laboratory (1–5). The primary wearable sensors used recently in locomotion biomechanics have been multi-axial inertial measurement units (IMUs), which measure linear acceleration, angular velocity data as well as the local magnetic field.
