Study of an Orthotic Designed to Equalize Leg Lengths for Patients With Injuries Managed in Walking Boots

Patients who undergo foot and ankle surgery are often made weight-bearing as tolerated (WBAT) in a controlled ankle movement (CAM) boot during their recovery and rehabilitation process. Ho...

A Prospective, Randomized, Controlled Trial Comparing Early Weight Bearing versus Non Weight Bearing Following Modified Lapidus Arthrodesis

Immediate Weight-Bearing Ankle Study

This single-centre prospective cohort study will compare outcomes of immediate unprotected weight bearing as tolerated and range of motion on patients with surgically-treated rotational an...

Weight Change With Controlled Ankle Movement (CAM) Walker Boot Use

The purpose of the study is to determine if patients wearing a CAM walker boot for a minimum of 6 weeks have a change in weight compared to patients who wear a CAM boot for a minimum of 6 ...

Early Weight Bearing on Supracondylar Distal Femur Fractures in Elderly Patients

Syndesmotic fixation in unstable ankle fractures: Does early post-operative weight bearing affect radiographic outcomes?

To analyse whether early post-operative full weight bearing following syndesmotic ankle fixation affected radiographic outcomes suggestive of diastasis.

Otolaryngology boot camps: Current landscape and future directions.

Simulation-based boot camps have gained popularity over the past few years, with some surgical specialties implementing mandatory national boot camps. However, there is no consensus in otolaryngology ...

Weight-bearing in ankle fractures: An audit of UK practice.

The purpose of this national study was to audit the weight-bearing practice of orthopaedic services in the National Health Service (NHS) in the treatment of operatively and non-operatively treated ank...

Intrinsic foot muscle size can be measured reliably in weight bearing using ultrasound imaging.

The intrinsic foot muscles (IFMs) are important contributors to optimal foot function. While assessment of IFM morphology using ultrasound imaging in non-weight bearing has been established, this does...

New design total knee arthroplasty shows medial pivoting movement under weight-bearing conditions.

To assess, using model-based dynamic radiostereometric analysis (RSA), the biomechanical behaviour of a new design posterior-stabilized (PS) fixed-bearing (FB) total knee arthroplasty (TKA) in vivo wh...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The physical state of supporting an applied load. This often refers to the weight-bearing bones or joints that support the body's weight, especially those in the spine, hip, knee, and foot.

A subset of plants bearing a vascular system; examples are ferns and seed-bearing species.

Device designed to wear externally to support muscular skeletal system in various movements such as RANGE OF MOTIONS; WEIGHT-BEARING; GAIT; and LOCOMOTION.

A subset of various vascular plants (also known as the Tracheophyta) which include seed-bearing and non seed-bearing species.

Noninflammatory degenerative disease of the hip joint which usually appears in late middle or old age. It is characterized by growth or maturational disturbances in the femoral neck and head, as well as acetabular dysplasia. A dominant symptom is pain on weight-bearing or motion.
