KOL-Index: 23 OBJECTIVE: To determine which lower limb strength and joint kinetic and kinematic parameters distinguish sit-to-stand (STS) performance of older adults with symptomatic knee osteoarthritis (OA) with higher and lower chair stand time. DESIGN: Cross-sectional. SETTING: Motion analysis laboratory. PARTICIPANTS: Individuals (N=49; 26 men, 23 women) aged 50 to 79 years (mean ± SD age, 64.7±8.1y) ...

KOL-Index: 17 The purpose of the current study was to assess kinematic coupling within the foot in individuals across a range of arch heights. Seventeen subjects participated in this study. Weight-bearing lateral radiographs were used to measure the arch height, defined as angle between the 1st metatarsal and the calcaneus. A kinematic model including the 1st metatarsal, lateral forefoot, calcaneus and ...

KOL-Index: 15 OBJECTIVES: To determine which lower-limb joint moments and powers characterize the level of gait performance of older adults with symptomatic knee osteoarthritis (OA). DESIGN: Cross-sectional observational study. SETTING: University motion analysis laboratory. PARTICIPANTS: Community-dwelling adults (N=60; 27 men, 33 women; age 50-79y) with symptomatic knee OA. INTERVENTIONS: Not ...

KOL-Index: 15 STUDY DESIGN: Mixed, repeated measures design. OBJECTIVES: To determine if previous experience with loads of similar weight influences the anticipatory lifting force and postural adjustments during the squat lift. To examine a multijoint, functional task for coordination between stability and movement. To determine if lifting unexpected loads results in trunk loading patterns associated with ...

KOL-Index: 14 Previous designs for a device to measure first ray mobility have included compression of the first metatarsal fat pad as part of the measurement of displacement or have failed to standardize the force applied to the head of the first metatarsal. In this investigation, assessment of vertical mobility of the first ray of both feet in 14 volunteers was determined using a device that applied ...

KOL-Index: 14 PURPOSE: This study assessed the biomechanical gait changes in obese and normal-weight female adult subjects after a commonly recommended 30-min walking session. Hip and knee adduction and extensor moments, which are the primary modulators of frontal and sagittal plane load distribution, were hypothesized to increase in obese females after a 30-min walking period, resulting in more stress ...

KOL-Index: 14 STUDY DESIGN: Case study. OBJECTIVE: To compare knee kinematics and moments of nongiving way trials to a giving way trial during a combined stepping and crossover cutting activity. BACKGROUND: The knee kinematics and moments associated with giving way episodes suggest motor control strategies that lead to instability and recovery of stability during movement. METHODS AND MEASURES: A ...

KOL-Index: 13 The purpose of this study was to determine how an overweight or obese child's cardiorespiratory fitness level and a state of fatigue affect gait biomechanics. METHODS: Using a three-dimensional motion analysis system, twenty-nine (female and male) overweight and obese children aged 8-11 years walked on force plates before and after being fatigued from the Progressive Aerobic Cardiovascular ...

KOL-Index: 13 BACKGROUND: Impairment in intrinsic foot mobility has been identified as an important potential contributor to altered foot function in individuals with diabetes mellitus and neuropathy, however the role of limited foot mobility in gait remains poorly understood. The purpose of our study was to examine segmental foot mobility during gait in subjects with and without diabetes and neuropathy. ...

KOL-Index: 13 The objective of this study was to compare knee angles and moments of healthy subjects (n=20) and subjects that were anterior cruciate ligament deficient (ACLD) (n=16) during stepping and crossover cutting activities. Subjects that were ACLD were separated into high (n=7) and low (n=9) functioning groups based on knee functional ratings. Knee angles and moments were estimated using three ...
