Knee joint biomechanics and neuromuscular control during gait before and after total knee arthroplasty are sex-specific.
The future of total knee arthroplasty (TKA) surgery will involve planning that incorporates more patient-specific characteristics. Despite known biological, morphological, and functional differences between men and women, ...
Obesity is associated with prolonged activity of the quadriceps and gastrocnemii during gait
Purpose: To examine the effect of obesity and its potential interaction with knee OA presence on the electromyography patterns of the major knee joint periarticular muscles during walking. Scope: One hundred and eighteen ...
Relationship between knee adduction moment patterns extracted using principal component analysis and discrete measures with different amplitude normalizations: Implications for knee osteoarthritis progression studies.
BACKGROUND: Knee adduction moment discrete features (peaks and impulses) are commonly reported in knee osteoarthritis gait studies, but they do not necessarily capture loading patterns. Principal component analysis ...
