chimpanzee locomotion hasbeen a great interest factors for the zoologists. Chimpanzees (Pan troglodytes) habitually move both bilaterally and quadraticly, and like the early monkey, hominins have become a common topic for understanding the evolution of bipedal locomotion. Here we make a strong comparison of kinetic, and bilateral and quadratic walking and walking in a sample of five captured chimpanzee and its locomotion. This article will be discussing about chimpanzee locomotion.
The kinetics were recorded using Sagittal-Plane digital high-speed video in the treadmill trial. The kinetics were recorded through a forcepset. During the treadmill test, metabolic energy expenditure was measured by constant oxygen service.
Consistent with previous work on chimpanzees and other homogenoids, we found that the spatiotemporal properties, joint angles, ground reaction forces, and metabolic costs of bipedal and quadratic locomotives are similar in chimpanzees.
Significant differences include hip and trunk angles, which reflect more orthogonal trunk posture during bilateral, and medial ground response forces, which were larger during bipolar movement. Stride frequencies were also higher (and shorter step length) during the bipedal trial.
Binomial and quadrangular walking among chimpanzees is similar for bonuses, gibbons, and other primates. The similarity between expenditures between bilateral and quadratic trials suggests that adoption of bilateral walking did not have any effect on walking costs for hominins, such as early girlfriends.
However, more orthogradical posture in the habitual bilateral and in the abductor system of the brain may be in favor of changes in the buttocks to allow the medial ground force to be applied efficiently.
Chimpanzees have been adapted for both arboreal and terrestrial locomotion. The arboreal locomotion consists of a vertical ascent and a Brexit. On the ground floor, the chimps move both double and bipedally, whose combustion costs seem to be the same.
Like the bonobos and gorillas, the chimps move through the knuckle-walking in a quadriplegic move that probably developed independently of the pan and the gorilla. The physical strength of chimps is about 1.5 times higher than that of humans, due to the high content of the fast thin muscular fibers, adapted for a climb and swing of chimpanzees.
A research team led by Stony Brook University is investigating human and chimpanzee locomotives that have found unexpected similarities in how two species use their upper body when walking on two legs.
The results published in Nature Communications indicate that our early human ancestors, including the famous fossil ‘Lucy’ (a species known as Australopithecus afferensis), may be able to use their torso to enhance their ability to move.
