Altered hip and knee kinematics in the frontal and transverse planes may increase patellofemoral joint stress and contribute to the development of patellofemoral pain. The purpose of this cross-sectional study was to evaluate the association among hip and knee kinematics, pain, and self-reported functional status in males and females with patellofemoral(More)
This study aimed to compare the immediate effects of 3 running technique modifications on the ankle, knee, hip and trunk kinematics and on the perceived comfort in healthy runners. The modifications were: forefoot striking pattern (FFOOT); increasing 10% of step rate (10% SR); and increasing forward trunk lean (FTL). 31 healthy runners participated.(More)
Objetivo: O objetivo do presente trabalho é criar um método que possa minimizar erros na classificação de dados utilizando uma estrutura de indexação métrica semelhante a M-tree para consultas por similaridade, possibilitando encontrar pontos de intersecção que podem ser movidos entre partições vizinhas, através de uma heurística semelhante a utilizada pelo(More)
