Stair ascent and descent requires large knee motions and muscle forces that can be challenging for people with anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) deficiency. Movement and muscle activity patterns were compared in two groups of ACL deficient subjects and a group of uninjured subjects. The ACL deficient subjects were prospectively classified according to functional ability. "Copers" were defined as individuals with complete ACL rupture and no symptoms of knee instability and participated in high… CONTINUE READING
