BACKGROUND The purpose of the study was to analyze the distribution of net joint moments in the lower extremities in patients walking with a drop-foot compared to a group of healthy subjects. A drop-foot causes the patient to walk with a characteristic limp and it was hypothesized that the drop-foot could lead to increased loadings of one or more joints. METHODS Six patients and fourteen healthy subjects walked at a fixed speed over two recessed force platforms while the movements were… CONTINUE READING
