Increased knee loading in stair ambulation in patients dissatisfied with their total knee replacement.

Summary of "Increased knee loading in stair ambulation in patients dissatisfied with their total knee replacement."

Total knee replacement patients have shown reductions in knee flexion range of motion, knee extensor moments, and gait speed during stair ascent and stair descent. However, it is unknown how patients dissatisfied with their total knee replacement differ from those who are satisfied during more difficult activities such as stair negotiation. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to compare knee biomechanics of patients who are dissatisfied with their joint replacement to those who are satisfied and healthy participants during stair negotiation.
