Gait analysis based on the triaxial electrogoniometric method was carried out on a large group of normals and total knee replacement patients before and after surgery. Analysis of the objective gait variables was performed to compare the pre and postoperative results with that of the normals. Eight most significant gait variables were identified and from which two functional indices were calculated to provide an overall assessment of the reconstructive procedure based on disease type, side of… CONTINUE READING
