Human motion capture is used in various fields to analyse, understand and reproduce the diversity of movements that are required during daily-life activities. The proposed dataset of human gait has been established on 50 adults injury-free for lower and upper extremities in the most recent six months, with no lower and upper extremity surgery in the last two years. Participants were asked to walk on a straight level walkway at 5 speeds during one unique session: 0–0.4 m.s-1, 0.4–0.8 m.s-1, 0.8–1.2 m.s-1, self-selected spontaneous and fast speeds. Three dimensional trajectories of 52 reflective markers spread over the whole body, 3D ground reaction forces and moment, and electromyographic signals were simultaneously recorded. For each participants, a minimum of 3 trials per condition have been made available in the dataset for a total of 1.145 trials. This dataset could lead to increase the sample size of similar datasets, analyse the effect of walking speed on gait, or conduce unusual analysis of gait thanks to the full body markerset used.
