OBJECTIVE To evaluate a walking program incorporating real-time biofeedback to reduce asymmetric limb loading after total hip arthroplasty (THA). DESIGN Within-subject clinical intervention. SETTING Biomechanics laboratory. PARTICIPANTS Volunteers were screened for confounding disorders that could affect their gait other than unilateral THA. Participants included 28 subjects who were evaluated a minimum of 2 months after surgery and ambulatory without assistive devices. INTERVENTIONS… CONTINUE READING
