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, ...
Activation amplitude and temporal synchrony among back extensor and abdominal muscles during a controlled transfer task: comparison of men and women
Muscle synergies are important for spinal stability, but few studies examine temporal responses of spinal muscles to dynamic perturbations. This study examined activation amplitudes and temporal synergies among compartments ...
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 ...
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 ...
