Gait recordings exhibit intra-subject, inter-subject, within-trial and between-trial variability as well as data analysis methods. In medicine, comparison of different measuring method results or quantifying changes due to specific treatment is required. The aim of this study was to compare a group homogeneity with respect to dispersion around the reference curve and to compare waveforms of normal and pathological gait data based on joint angle curves. Data files were tracked using APAS system. Our own model of lower limb was used to calculate the trajectories of joint angles for 5 groups: healthy men, women, children, persons with drop foot and Trendelenburg's sign. Waveform parameterizations, RMS, IAE and correlation coefficients were used to compare joint angles with reference curve. The sample scores obtained in this work provide an important information about closeness in the shape of two curves. Using multiple techniques of data analysis will benefit and give more accurate information.
