This chapter describes three-dimensional gait analysis and common gait deviations in adults with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and osteoarthritis (OA). Furthermore, we describe changes in gait deviations following surgical and non-surgical interventions. Gait analysis is used to define gait deviations and to evaluate varying surgical approaches, types of(More)
BACKGROUND Limited knowledge exists regarding the impact of symptomatic knee osteoarthritis (OA) on the overall gait pattern; and whether gait deviations are associated with performance-based measures (PBMs) and patient-reported outcomes (PROs). This cross-sectional study evaluated overall gait patterns in patients with knee OA using the Gait Deviation(More)
Moment-angle relationship (dynamic joint stiffness)--the relationship between changes in joint moment and changes in joint angle--is useful for demonstrating interaction of kinematics and kinetics during gait. However, the individual contributors of dynamic joint stiffness are not well studied and understood, which has thus far limited its clinical(More)
