PURPOSE Obesity influences gait and muscle function, which may contribute to knee osteoarthritis. The purpose of this study was to (1) compare gait biomechanics and quadriceps function between individuals with and without obesity, and (2) examine the association between quadriceps function and gait biomechanics. METHODS 48 individuals with and 48 without obesity participated and were matched on age and sex. Gait biomechanics at standardized and self-selected speeds were used to assess peak… CONTINUE READING
