OBJECTIVE To compare the knee joint loading patterns in individuals with differing radiographic grades of knee osteoarthritis (OA) for characterization of the mechanical implications of different… Expand
Preoperative gait adaptations persist one year after surgery in clinically well-functioning total hip replacement patients.
The purpose of this study was to evaluate whether preoperative gait adaptations persist one year after THR in the same set of subjects. The hypothesis tested was that hip dynamic range of motion and… Expand
Biceps Activity during Windmill Softball Pitching

Background Windmill pitching produces high forces and torques at the shoulder and elbow, making the biceps labrum complex susceptible to overuse injury. Little is known about the muscle firing… Expand
Relationship between pain and medial knee joint loading in mild radiographic knee osteoarthritis.
OBJECTIVE The relationship between knee pain and radiographic evidence of knee osteoarthritis (OA) is notoriously imperfect. In particular, conditions that distinguish individuals with symptoms from… Expand
Metal-on-metal bearing surfaces.

Aseptic loosening and other wear-related complications are some of the most frequent late reasons for revision of total knee arthroplasty (TKA). Periprosthetic osteolysis (PPOL) pre-dates aseptic… Expand
Tribochemical reaction on metal-on-metal hip joint bearings A comparison between in-vitro and in-vivo results
Abstract Metal-on-metal (MOM) hip joint bearings are considered one of the alternatives to the generally used metal-on-polyethylene bearings. In order to control and minimize wear of MOM bearings, an… Expand
Effects of common footwear on joint loading in osteoarthritis of the knee

- 1 July 2010
Elevated joint loads during walking have been associated with the severity and progression of osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee. Footwear may have the potential to alter these loads. This study… Expand
Do gait adaptations during stair climbing result in changes in implant forces in subjects with total hip replacements compared to normal subjects?
BACKGROUND The study objective was to identify gait abnormalities and their relationships to hip loading during stair climbing after total hip replacement. HYPOTHESES (1) total hip replacement… Expand
Effects of simple and complex motion patterns on gene expression of chondrocytes seeded in 3D scaffolds.
This study investigated the effect of unidirectional and multidirectional motion patterns on gene expression and molecule release of chondrocyte-seeded 3D scaffolds. Resorbable porous polyurethane… Expand
