Effects of backpack weight on posture, gait patterns and ground reaction forces of male children with obesity during stair descent.

Abstract

This study investigates the effects of backpack weight on posture, gait pattern, and ground reaction forces for children with obesity in an attempt to define a safe backpack weight limit for them. A total of 16 obese (11.19 ± 0.66 years of age) and 21 normal body weight (11.13 ± 0.69 years of age) schoolboys were recruited. Two force plates and two video… (More)
