Your walk is as unique as your fingerprint and harder to hide than your face. Now governments and companies are waking up to the power of gait analysis
LIAM GALLAGHER, formerly of the band Oasis, tends to stroll with a roll to his shoulders. John Waynes slow swagger has been linked to everything from a misaligned leg to small feet. Some say Vladimir Putins distinctive shuffle is thanks to KGB weapons training that encouraged operatives to dampen the swing of one arm to keep it closer to their gun.
Considering that walking is such an everyday function of a bipedal species, it is incredible that we find so many different ways to do it. Perhaps thats why our gaits and what they say about us are so fascinating. It takes dozens of muscles working together throughout the body to put one foot in front of the other. These subtle patterns of muscular flexes and strains are highly distinctive, so much so that scientists who study gait increasingly believe they are as unique to you as your fingerprint.

need some shots of dindu nuffins trying to walk with their pants falling down.
But they can’t identify the guy with the very strange walk who murdered the two policemen?
I recall one time, when I was in my thirties, going to a junkyard to get a part. Right as I left my car and started walking in, I noticed two black guys lounging around outside the shop. As I approached, their eyes started getting bigger and bigger with each step I took, and their jaws began to drop.
"What's the matter?" I asked, perplexed. To which one of them cried out in amazement, "We thought you was on SPRINGS!"
The guy that killed those two policemen looked like a little person had that same kind of walk also!! A little taller than most little people but if you look at the walk it was exactly the same!!
How are these idiots gonna recognize me on my mountain bike - thats how I get around
Laugh of the night!
From my thoughts at reading the title to your first post.
Warped minds think alike!
Put a pebble in your shoe if you ever need to hide from Big Brother.
We’ve been using gaits as part of the target folders for a while. It was probably some military intel type who introduced that TTP to the LE community.
Their facial recognition software isn’t working because they can’t stop people from wearing masks.
You are correct in calling it strange- I’m not even ready to call it a guy yet.
"I can't dance, I can't talk. Only thing about me is the way I walk...."
“Walk like an Egyptian”
Military folks could tell you this instinctively. Everyone dresses alike, everyone has the same haircuts, but watch them walk across a field and you know exactly who is coming late to formation.
“Walk this way, gentlemen”
Might be more difficult with soldiers from combat specialties (marching, uniform gaits).
