Is there a dataset out there right now that shows the typical acceleration and angular velocity values for sensors attached to the thigh, shank, and feet for standard walking?

Or literature/textbook that describes what these typical values should be?

You could ballpark this in about 5 minutes by downloading an accelerometer logging app on your phone and duct taping it to various parts of your body.
