Summary of "Skipping has lower knee joint contact forces and higher metabolic cost compared to running."

The health benefits of running based exercise programs are plentiful however the high rate of injury in these programs often reduces or eliminates exercise participation. Skipping has shorter steps, reduced vertical ground reaction forces (GRFs), and lower knee extensor torques, compared to running forming the basis of the present hypothesis that skipping would have lower tibio-femoral and patello-femoral joint contact forces.

Immediate effects of valgus knee bracing on tibiofemoral contact forces and knee muscle forces.

Background Valgus knee braces have been reported to reduce the external knee adduction moment during walking. However, mechanistic investigations into the effects of valgus bracing on medial compartme...

Loading of the hip and knee joints during whole body vibration training.

During whole body vibrations, the total contact force in knee and hip joints consists of a static component plus the vibration-induced dynamic component. In two different cohorts, these forces were me...

Patellofemoral Joint Contact Pressures: Current Concepts and Use in Patellar Instability Studies.

The patellofemoral joint is thought to be a common source for knee pain. Improper alignment and function of the patellofemoral joint can lead to abnormal contact pressures, which may explain patients'...

The purpose of this study was to verify if customized prosthesis better preserves the native knee joint kinematics and provides lower contact stress on the polyethylene (PE) insert owing to the wider ...

Modeling a rotator cuff tear: Individualized shoulder muscle forces influence glenohumeral joint contact force predictions.

Rotator cuff tears in older individuals may result in decreased muscle forces and changes to force distribution across the glenohumeral joint. Reduced muscle forces may impact functional task performa...
