Obesity is associated with higher absolute tibiofemoral contact and muscle forces during gait with and without knee osteoarthritis
Background Obesity is an important risk factor for knee osteoarthritis initiation and progression. However, it is unclear how obesity may directly affect the mechanical loading environment of the knee joint, initiating ...
Pre-operative muscle activation patterns during walking are associated with TKA tibial implant migration.
Background Gait biomechanical variables have been associated with total knee arthroplasty tibial implant migration measured with Radiostereometric Analysis (RSA), but no studies have examined the role of the periarticular ...
Explaining the hip adduction moment variability during gait: Implications for hip abductor strengthening
Background There is emerging interest in hip abductor function during gait and its potential relationship to knee joint pathology. During gait, the hip abductor muscles are primarily responsible for generating moments of ...
