BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Knee kinematics and kinetics have not been quantitatively studied during gait, stair negotiation, and rising from a chair in the same subjects, either among healthy control subjects or among subjects with knee joint impairments. Despite this paucity of data, rehabilitation goals often include achieving a specific peak knee torque at a specific, fixed angular velocity. SUBJECTS We compared the kinematic and kinetic performance of the knees in 15 subjects (19 knees) who… CONTINUE READING
