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...
Severe hemophilia is characterized by frequent and lifelong bleeding, with more than 60% of bleeds occurring into joints . Repeated joint bleeding leads to chronic synovitis, cartilage dam...
Total knee replacement is a major and painful orthopaedic (joint and bone) surgery where the knee joint is replaced with an artificial joint. It is an effective and successful procedure to...
Total knee arthroplasty (TKA) may result in significant postoperative pain. The majority of these patients are prescribed opioids for the management of postoperative pain. Recent evidence ...

Haemophilic ankle arthropathy may cause joint bleeding, pain, stiffness, erosion and progressive motion limitations, including a decreased range of motion (ROM) secondary to anterior osteophyte imping...
This study aimed to develop a rabbit model of knee contracture in extension and investigate the natural history of motion loss and time-dependent changes in the joint capsule after immobilization. We ...
Obesity is a mechanical risk factor for osteoarthritis. In individuals with obesity, knee joint pain is prevalent. Weight loss reduces joint loads, and therefore potentially delays disease progression...
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.
A region of the lower extremity immediately surrounding and including the KNEE JOINT.
