The purposes of this study were to: 1) assess whole body center of mass (CM) motion in the frontal, sagittal, and transverse planes; 2) compare CM displacement with center of pressure (CP); and, 3) further define the stance and swing subphases of stair ascent (SA) and stair descent (SD) based on critical CM, CP, and ground reaction force (GRF) events.

Partially funded through a grant from the Children's Hospital Los Angeles, School of Physical Therapy Alumni Association. The main purposes of this study were to determine the reliability of an isokinetic, inversion/eversion torque test with and without range of motion targets, as well as to assess the effects of a plantarflexion position and of limb(More)
It has been suggested that visual analysis of isokinetic quadriceps femoris muscle torque curve (TC) shapes may have potential use in the diagnosis and prognosis of knee pathologies. The primary purpose of this pilot study was to develop a method for analyzing the shape of an isokinetic TC. Our method normalizes and averages the TC, and then uses(More)
