Age-related differences in pelvic and trunk motion and gait adaptability at different walking speeds
Gimmon Y, Riemer R, Rashed H, Shapiro A, Debi R, Kurz I, Melzer I Abstract This study aimed at investigating age-related changes in gait kinematics and in kinematic adaptations over a wide range of walking velocities. Thirty-four older adults and 14 younger adults walked on a treadmill; the treadmill velocity was gradually increased in increments […]
A Novel Non-Invasive Adjuvant Biomechanical Treatment for Patients with Altered Rehabilitation after Total Knee Arthroplasty: Results of a Pilot Investigation
Clin Orthop Surg. 2015 Jun; 7(2): 191–198. Many factors contribute to suboptimal results after total knee arthroplasty (TKA) but little is known regarding the value of postsurgical rehabilitation after TKA. We examined the effects of an enhanced closed kinematic chain exercises program (AposTherapy) on gait patterns and clinical outcomes among patients with a lack of progress in their postsurgical rehabilitation.
INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF RHEUMATIC DISEASES · JULY 2015 Aim To examine the effect of a novel biomechanical, home-based, gait training device on gait patterns of obese individuals with knee OA
Hip Int. 2014 May-Jun;24(3):270-6. PURPOSE: Hip osteoarthritis (OA) is a slowly progressive destructive disease that results in alterations in joint loads and biomechanics to which patients adapt compensatory alterations and abnormal gait patterns. This prospective cross-sectional, case-controlled study examined these alterations in gait metrics and evaluated gender differences in gait spatiotemporal parameters. Correlations between function and gait metrics were also investigated
J Orthop. 2014 May 13;11(2):72-7 Purpose: To investigate the effect of a biomechanical therapy on gait, function and clinical condition in patients following total knee arthroplasty (TKA).
Osteoarthritis Cartilge 2014 Jan 10 OBJECTIVE: to describe a novel classification method for knee osteoarthritis (OA) based on spatiotemporal gait analysis.
Knee. 2013 Dec;20(6):595-9. BACKGROUND: This study was devised to examine the effect of a novel biomechanical therapy for patients suffering from anterior knee pain (AKP).
Neural processes underlying the”same”-“different” judgment of two simultaneously presented objects–an EEG study
PLoS One. 2013 Dec 12;8(12): The present study investigated the neural processes underlying "same" and -"different" judgments for two simultaneously presented objects, that varied on one or both, of two dimensions: color and shape.
A non-invasive biomechanical device and treatment for patients following total hip arthroplasty: results of a 6-month pilot investigation
J Orthop Surg Res. 2013 May 21;8:13 BACKGROUND:The purpose of the study was to examine the effect of a foot-worn biomechanical device on the clinical measurements and gait patterns of patients with total hip arthroplasty (THA).
