    ..The possible presence of non-phasic interactions implies that trajectory analyses must be conducted at the whole-trajectory level, because a failure to do so will generally miss non-phasic interactions if present. ..
  2. Pataky T, Vanrenterghem J, Robinson M. Zero- vs. one-dimensional, parametric vs. non-parametric, and confidence interval vs. hypothesis testing procedures in one-dimensional biomechanical trajectory analysis. J Biomech. 2015;48:1277-85 pubmed publisher
  3. Pataky T, Vanrenterghem J, Robinson M. The probability of false positives in zero-dimensional analyses of one-dimensional kinematic, force and EMG trajectories. J Biomech. 2016;49:1468-1476 pubmed publisher
    ..Either (a) explicit a priori identification of 0D variables or (b) adoption of 1D methods can more tightly control ?. ..
  4. Pataky T, Robinson M, Vanrenterghem J. A computational framework for estimating statistical power and planning hypothesis-driven experiments involving one-dimensional biomechanical continua. J Biomech. 2018;66:159-164 pubmed publisher
    ..In short, it shifts focus from a search for significance to a search for non-rejectable hypotheses. ..
  5. Pataky T. Spatial resolution in plantar pressure measurement revisited. J Biomech. 2012;45:2116-24 pubmed publisher
    ..It is concluded simply that no particular spatial resolution can yield a constant measurement accuracy across common plantar pressure measurement tasks. ..

    ..42±0.52% of the foot's surface, even for a highly conservative uncorrected threshold of p<0.05. The common assumption, that short gait bouts consist of independent cycles, is therefore not refuted by the present PP results. ..
