1. A method for providing a simulation of conditions of bipedal locomotion for a human subject on a treadmill having a conveyor defining a velocity, comprising the steps of:

  • constraining the subject along a direction of motion of the treadmill;

    measuring the magnitude of a force applied to the treadmill by the subject; and

    controlling the velocity of the conveyor based, at least in part, upon the magnitude of the force applied to the treadmill.
