BackgroundControl of the mediolateral displacement of the center of gravity (COG) is considered to be important for efficient walking. Few studies have been published on the relation between walking efficiency and the lateral displacement of the trunk, pelvis, or COG in patients soon after total hip arthroplasty (THA). The present study was undertaken to examine the effects of lateral displacement on walking efficiency after THA.MethodsThe subjects of this study were 15 women who had undergone… CONTINUE READING
