Biomechanical Comparison of
Deep Water and Treadmill Running
John A. Mercer,
The coordination of a movement is the process of mastering redundant
degrees of freedom of the moving organ, in other words, its conversion to
a controllable system.
The presentation of deep water running mechanics has been broken down
into the following sections. You can go directly to any section, as well
as to the data, but is recommended that you start with the introduction.
Easy reference to data.
