[Purpose] We investigated the change of the movement of the Center of the Gravity (COG) while walking in the recovery process after surgery. [Subjects] The subjects were 9 women who had undergone total hip arthroplasty (THA) and 11 healthy women as controls. [Methods] Kinetic analyses were conducted using force platforms and a three-dimensional motion analyzer. [Results] At 4 weeks postsurgery, gait velocity was slow, and showed an asymmetric and large COG displacement with dynamic properties… CONTINUE READING
