||Cyclic motion is at the core of many sports such as running, swimming, or cycling.
The study of corresponding kinematic variables is fundamental for the evaluation of
training routines and the assessment of performance. Conventional kinematic
analysis of human cyclic locomotion derives characteristic features from a few
single cycles (e.g., average peak, average difference between peaks, as in Harris
and Smith, 1996). However, most current methods ignore the full dynamics of the
motion that may reveal important additional insight into patterns of motor control
(Schablowski-Trautmann & Gerner, 2006).
