The GAITRite is a portable gait analysis tool for automated measurement of spatiotemporal gait parameters. Although frequently used for clinical and research purposes, the concurrent validity of GAITRite has not been validated against a criterion measure. The aim of this experiment was to investigate the concurrent validity and test retest reliability of(More)
BACKGROUND Graft rupture of the same knee or injury to the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in the contralateral knee is a devastating outcome after ACL reconstruction surgery. While a number of factors have been identified as potentially increasing the risk of subsequent ACL injury, the literature is far from definitive. PURPOSE To determine the rates of(More)
Clinically feasible methods of assessing postural control such as timed standing balance and functional reach tests provide important information, however, they cannot accurately quantify specific postural control mechanisms. The Microsoft Kinect™ system provides real-time anatomical landmark position data in three dimensions (3D), and given that it is(More)
BACKGROUND An athlete's intention to return to sport following anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury is a major indication for surgical intervention. PURPOSE The purpose of this review was to determine postoperative return-to-sport outcomes after ACL reconstruction surgery. STUDY DESIGN Meta-analysis and systematic review METHODS Electronic(More)
The present study assessed the effects of occlusion duration and attention on components of the respiratory-related evoked potential (RREP). Twenty-nine channel evoked potential recordings were obtained from 12 young adults exposed to a pseudorandom sequence of 100-, 200-, 400-, and 800-ms inspiratory occlusions, under attend and ignore conditions.

OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to develop a scale to measure the psychological impact of returning to sport after anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction surgery. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE Three types of psychological responses believed to be associated with resumption of sport following athletic injury--emotions, confidence in performance,(More)
Rates of return to pre-injury sport following anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction are less than might be expected from standard outcome measures and there appears to be a rapid decline in sporting participation after two to three years. There are many factors that influence whether an individual will return to sport following this type of(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to update our original systematic review of return to sport rates following anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction surgery. METHOD Electronic databases were searched from April 2010 to November 2013 for articles reporting the number of patients returning to sport following ACL reconstruction surgery. Return to(More)
PURPOSE To investigate whether synchronising over-ground walking to rhythmic auditory cues improves temporal and spatial gait measures in adults with neurological clinical conditions other than Parkinson's disease. METHOD A search was performed in June 2011 using the computerised databases AGELINE, AMED, AMI, CINAHL, Current Contents, EMBASE, MEDLINE,(More)
This study compared individual step and averaged spatial and temporal gait parameters measured with an instrumented walkway system (GAITRite) with a three-dimensional motional analysis system (Vicon-512). Ten subjects aged 54-83 years (mean 66.5 years) who had undergone knee replacement surgery participated. Subjects walked across the GAITRite walkway at(More)
