   Lumbar angle Lumbar moment Lumbar angle Lumbar moment
Lower limb joint angle (deg) Hip angle 0.219(0.398) -0.334(0.190) 0.822(0.000)* 0.044(0.864)
  Knee angle 0.653(0.005)* 0.018(0.947) 0.375(0.126) 0.525(0.025)
  Ankle angle 0.148(0.571) -0.295(0.250) -0.750(0.000)* -0.280(0.261)
Lower limb joint moment (Nm/kg) Hip moment 0.381(0.131) 0.975(0.000)* 0.287(0.248) 0.875(0.000)*
  Knee moment 0.352(0.166) -0.621(0.008)* 0.672(0.002)* -0.116(0.646)
  Ankle moment -0.354(0.163) 0.668(0.003)* -0.802(0.000)* -0.199(0.428)
