To review and synthesize the biomechanical effects of valgus knee bracing for patients with medial knee osteoarthritis (OA). Electronic databases were searched from their inception to May 2014. Two reviewers independently determined study eligibility, rated study quality and extracted data. Where possible, data were combined into meta-analyses and pooled(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the combined and individual biomechanical effects of a valgus knee brace and a lateral wedge foot orthotic during stair ascent and descent in patients with knee osteoarthritis (OA). Thirty-five patients with varus alignment and medial knee OA were prescribed a custom valgus knee brace and lateral wedge foot orthotic.(More)
BACKGROUND Post-stoke gait disorders could cause secondary musculoskeletal complications associated with excessive repetitive loading. The study objectives were to 1) determine the feasibility of measuring common proxies for dynamic medial knee joint loading during gait post-stroke with external knee adduction (KAM) and flexion moments (KFM) and 2)(More)
