Japanese scientists have invented a system that will undoubtedly help to qualify the true age of a person based on the features of his gait. The study involved more than four thousand people of different ages.
Extraordinary study was fascinated scientists from the Institute of Osaka. They forced each of the subjects twice travel a distance of 6 metres, held repeating the route in reverse order. People's actions were recorded on video, which is researched and scientific workers, constituting the basis of the result of the interactive data, which are models of walk people of various age groups. Here you can get acquainted with the unique characteristics of people of different ages, such as stride length, hand movements, or the tension of the back muscles.
On the database of the system can simply be described as "young" or moves that other person. So, it turned out that young people aged 20 to 30 years is not much waving hands, as followers more than the older generation (40 -50 years). In addition, the observations clearly showed that with age, people increasingly bends when walking, reports TASS.
The head of the project Yasushi Yagi, commenting on the results of the study, said: "We want people asking what age corresponds to their gait, more watched and played sports" . Developed by Yagi and his co-workers the system will be installed in Tokyo's Science Museum, where anyone can figure out how youthful "look" of its steps.
While earlier researchers have verified that the gait of a man determines his mood. Respondents were offered a list of epithets to characterize the mood. After that, the subjects reproduced the various methods of walking. During the movement of people asked to recall the adjectives from the list. The people who walked with raised head, called positive words. Depressed step leads to sad thoughts about the definitions.
