BACKGROUND This study examined metabolic energy cost and external mechanical work for step-to-step transitions after tibiotalar arthrodesis, and the effect of MBT rocker bottom shoes. METHODS Oxygen uptake, forceplate and kinematic data were recorded in 18 controls and 15 patients while walking at a fixed speed of 1.25 m/s in three walking conditions: barefoot, normal walking shoes and MBT rocker bottom shoes. Metabolic energy cost, external mechanical work, and the roll-over shape of the… CONTINUE READING
