The motion of the center of gravity during walking was analyzed in five hemiplegic subjects and eleven subjects affected by unilateral hip arthritis. In the hemiplegic subjects and 6 subjects with hip arthritis the transfer between kinetic and potential energy (with a passive pendular motion) was found to be 9-95% greater during the step performed on the affected limb ("pathological" step); as a consequence, the muscular work done during this step was 7-81% of the work done during the step… CONTINUE READING
