Load Asymmetry

Load asymmetry is the percent difference between g-forces exerted on the left and right feet. It is defined by:

The R or L signifier after the asymmetry percentage shows the side that experiences more g-force. For example, an asymmetry of 9.12% L would indicate that the left foot experienced 9.12% more g-force than the right foot.

Note that g-forces are accelerations, not ground reaction forces.
