BACKGROUND The purpose of this study was to investigate gait characteristics of patients with bilateral hip osteoarthritis (BHO) independent of walking speed. METHODS We measured gait parameters in 12 BHO patients during free walking activities and in 12 normal adults during both free walking and slow walking activities using a three-dimensional computerized gait analysis system. RESULTS Patients with BHO had a lower walking speed, step length, and cadence than normal subjects during free… CONTINUE READING
