Japanese Gait Study Supports The Claims Of Happeh Theory

One of the main claims of Happeh Theory is that specific movement patterns of the body are related to specific health conditions of both the body and mind. For instance. If a person masturbates in one specific way, say using their right hand, their thought processes and health condition will be different from the thought processes and health condition of someone who masturbates with their left hand.

The Japanese study in this post has determined that Japanese children walk differently than other children from around the world. It will be obvious to any person who spends a short amount of time looking into the situation that Japanese people in general, both children and adults, exhibit different ways of thinking, different states of health, and a different physical appearance from other peoples of the world.

This Japanese study supports the claims of Happeh Theory because it has identified one of the types of physical movement that according to Happeh Theory contributes to the undeniable physical differences between adult Japanese people and adults of other peoples around the world.

A related avenue of research for the interested individual would be to study the dance movements that are a foundation of many African peoples, and their relationship to the undeniable physical differences African people exhibit from peoples of other countries of the world.

The manner of walking in Japanese children develops differently from that of those in other countries, according to a new study that sheds more light on the ways body movement patterns are linked to health.

The research, published recently in the journal Scientific Reports, found that although the gait patterns of Japanese children aged 6-12 are similar to those from other developed countries, their development over the years differs.

In the study, age-related differences in lower limb movements during walking were assessed by scientists, including those from Nagoya University in Japan.

A person’s gait is a complex, unconscious motor pattern, essential for most daily activities, comprising of a sequence of movements involving the hip, knee and foot.

Researchers said gait can be critical for measuring a person’s quality of life and health status, and understanding the forces involved in gait can help treat people with movement disorders.

They found four important differences among age groups in the study.

There was an increase in the number of steps performed in one minute among children in the 11-12-year-old group, compared to children in the 6-8-year age group.

Researchers also found a decrease in step and stride length among children aged 11-12 years compared to those aged 9-10 years.

Japanese children of age 11-12 years had less range of motion of the knee during the gait cycle, scientists pointed out.

And as children aged, they observed a higher plantar flexion moment – the motion when pointing toes at the start of the walking movement.

“We believe that differences in lifestyle, build, and cultural factors all affect Japanese children’s gait,” said study co-author Tadashi Ito from the Department of Integrated Health Sciences at Nagoya University.

“This is not likely to affect the health of Japanese children. But it does indicate characteristics different from those of children in other countries. These results provide an important tool for assessing normal and pathological gait and can determine the effectiveness of orthopedic treatment and rehabilitation for gait disorders,” Dr Ito added.

Researchers believe the findings can be useful to assess developmental changes in the gait pattern and detect gait abnormalities in children.
