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.

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...
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...
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 ...
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...
The five-year goal of this project is to investigate the effect of in-shoe wedged orthoses on lower extremity function in patients with knee osteoarthritis. In general, our aims address t...
The purpose of the current study is to analyze and compare the lower-limb joint motions and muscle activation patterns during activities of daily living as well as self reported health rel...
Bone responds according to the load placed on it. In this study, investigators want to know if exercise that loads the body in exercises, like walking or jogging (Ground Reaction Forces: G...
Aim of the study is to investigate the impact of meal skipping (breakfast or dinner skipping) on the regulation of glucose metabolism and macronutrient balance (protein/fat/carbohydrate in...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether or not giving a lower dose of antibiotics (Vancomycin) in the area where it is needed (the knee joint) is more effective at preventing inf...
A region of the lower extremity immediately surrounding and including the KNEE JOINT.
An instrument used to assess the results of rehabilitation from knee injuries, especially those requiring ANTERIOR CRUCIATE LIGAMENT RECONSTRUCTION. It measures recovery of knee joint function based on ACTIVITIES OF DAILY LIVING.
Replacement for a knee joint.
Injuries to the knee or the knee joint.
Replacement of the knee joint.
A joint is where two or more bones come together, like the knee, hip, elbow, or shoulder. Joints can be damaged by many types of injuries or diseases, including Arthritis - inflammation of a joint causes pain, stiffness, and swelling with ...
