CONTEXT Unilateral body-weight exercises are commonly used to strengthen the lower limbs during rehabilitation after injury, but data comparing the loading of the limbs during these tasks are limited. OBJECTIVE To compare joint kinetics and kinematics during 3 commonly used rehabilitation exercises. DESIGN Descriptive laboratory study. SETTING Laboratory. PATIENTS OR OTHER PARTICIPANTS A total of 9 men (age = 22.1 ± 1.3 years, height = 1.76 ± 0.08 m, mass = 80.1 ± 12.2 kg) participated… CONTINUE READING
