Example of force time series for SLOPE = 0°, LOAD = 0 (a) and SLOPE = 0°, LOAD = 1 (b) from the same rat. Forces represent resultant forces from the Fhor and Fvert vectors. First peak (closed line) represents FL, second peak (dotted line) represents HL. Insert shows separated horizontal (Fhor) and vertical force (Fvert) which corresponds with 1a. To = time at onset of peak; Tmax = time at maximum force; Te = time at end of peak; Fo = force at onset of peak; Fmax = maximum force
