Background: Though numerous studies have compared overground and treadmill walking there still exists a significant debate about whether the two modes of walking are equivalent. The present study provides a comprehensive ...
Hip and knee frontal plane biomechanics in people with medial compartment knee osteoarthritis
Objectives: To investigate differences between hip abductor muscle strength, hip and knee adduction moments and knee joint alignment in people with moderate/severe and mild medial compartment knee osteoarthritis (OA), and ...
Biomechanical and physical requirements of stair negotiation with respect to aging and stroke
The ability to safely and efficiently negotiate stairs is an essential skill for independent ambulation. To date, basic research to identify biomechanical and physical costs is limited in older adults. In persons with ...
Differences in pelvic floor muscle activation and functional output between women with and without stress urinary incontinence
Introduction: The primary purpose of this research was to determine whether women with stress urinary incontinence (SUI) demonstrate pelvic floor muscle (PFM) strength or endurance deficits and/or changes in the motor ...
