The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of different methods of backpack carrying on gait kinetics in children, using a new treadmill that allowed three-dimensional measurement of right and left leg ground reaction forces (GRFs). Forty-one healthy children, with a mean age of 12 years, participated in this study. The mean height was 152 cm and(More)
The purpose of this study was to assess the influence of age and speed on the asymmetry of ground reaction forces (GRFs) and spatiotemporal parameters (STPs) during normal gait in 4- to 10-year-old children. Forty-seven children walked at three speeds on a treadmill dynamometer (ADAL; Tecmachine, Andrézieux Bouthéon, France). Thirty steps were recorded at(More)
The aim of this study was to assess the influence of both age and speed on ground reaction forces and temporal parameters during normal gait in children. Fifteen children aged 4-6 years (group 1), 16 aged 6-8 years (group 2), and 16 aged 8-10 years (group 3) walked at 2.7 km/h, 3.6 km/h, and 4.5 km/h on a treadmill. For each child thirty successive steps(More)
Back pain has become a real public health concern both for adults and children. In general, patients complain of moderate pain. While the topic was long ignored by the scientific community, the number of publications has increased over the last three Years. We reviewed the literature to separate real evidence from speculations. Recognized risk factors for(More)
The authors present a new procedure for acquiring the whole external trunk shape. The construction of braces starts with corrected a positive mold using computer-assisted design software connected to a digital tooling machine. The computer-assisted design and construction of braces enable the determination, measurement, and modification of a(More)
