2003 Gait adaptations in patients with longstanding hip fusion

Location: http://www.josonline.org/pdf/v11i2p154.pdf

Motion analysis was performed on 9 patients who underwent unilateral hip arthrodesis between 1979 and 1991. A standard clinical gait analysis 3- dimensional model for the lower limb was used to calculate the effect of the fused hip on walking, compared with the contralateral normal hip. Results. Significant (p<0.05) gait adaptations noted in the fused side were,...

2006 Limping Child eMedicine

Location: http://emedicine.medscape.com/article/1258835-overview

2008 3-Dimensional Gait Analysis for Patients With Lower-Limb Amputations

Location: http://www.amputee-coalition.org/military-instep/3d-gait-analysis.html

Because computerized 3-D gait analysis can be time-consuming, it may not be recommended for everyone with a lower-limb amputation. Instead, it may be reserved for the more difficult cases, such as people with two lower limb amputations, those with one limb amputated above the knee, or those who have persistent...

2011 Adaptation to altered balance conditions in unilateral amputees

Location: http://www.biomedcentral.com/1471-2474/12/118/abstract

Conclusion Of the two adaptation strategies in balance, the first appears before amputation due to pain and fatigue in the affected leg. This strategy appears in the form of reduced postural sway while standing on the non-affected leg. The second adaptation occurs during rehabilitation and regular use of the prosthesis resulting...

2011 Relationships between the Foot Posture Index and foot kinematics during gait in individuals with and without patellofemoral pain syndrome

Location: http://www.jfootankleres.com/content/4/1/10

Conclusion In both individuals with and without PFPS, there was fair to moderate association between the FPI and some parameters of dynamic foot function. Inconsistent findings between the PFPS and control groups indicate that pathology may play a role in the relationship between static foot posture and dynamic function. The fair...
