Abstract Background A hinged ankle-foot orthosis is prescribed for children with spastic unilateral cerebral palsy to improve gait function by correcting spastic equinus. However, little is known about the effect of orthotic management on muscle activity during walking in this population. Research question Does muscle activity in medial gastrocnemius and tibialis anterior change in children with spastic unilateral cerebral palsy when walking with hinged ankle-foot orthoses featuring two differen...

Abstract Background Ageing commonly disrupts the balance control and compensatory postural responses that contribute to maintaining balance and preventing falls during perturbation of posture. Improvement of compensatory postural responses during walking is one of the main goals in fall prevention programs which often include treadmill walking training. However, during treadmill walking, there is a sensory (visualsomatosensory and vestibular-somatosensory) conflict that can evoke aftereffects of...

Abstract Background Determining adherence with orthoses is important for clinicians prescribing devices. Measuring orthotic use often relies on patient recall which has poor agreement with objective measures. Measuring step count whilst wearing an orthosis could help objectively quantifying adherence. The Odstock Drop Foot Stimulator (ODFS) Pace, used in foot drop, has an integral activity logger which provides data on step count. The PALite, an accelerometer, measures step count and can be fixe...

Abstract Background Selecting the appropriate cut-off frequency to filter triaxial accelerometric data is a challenging issue in gait analyses. It reduces soft tissues artifacts and the variability in the kinematic data waveform from able-bodied and physically impaired gaits. Research question Are cut-off frequencies estimated by four filtering methods similar along each axis of a triaxial accelerometer and for able-bodied subjects and those with an anterior cruciate ligament rupture (ACLR)? Met...

Abstract Background Pathologic gait is common in patients with cerebral palsy (CP). Single-event multilevel surgery (SEMLS) is a combination of surgical procedures to improve pathologic gait in patients with CP. However, the effect of each procedure is difficult to predict. The gait deviation index (GDI) is useful in comparing pre- and postoperative improvement. Research question In this study, we evaluated the degree of GDI improvement in patients with CP and analyzed factors related to surgica...

Abstract Background Walking training is an essential intervention to improve the function in stroke patients. However, only a limited number of gait training strategies are available for stroke patients with relatively severe disabilities. Research question Is underwater gait training or overground gait training more effective in severe stroke patients? Methods A total of 21 patients with severe hemiplegic stroke were randomly assigned to the experimental and control groups. All participants (n ...

Abstract Background The purpose of this prospective study was to understand the relation between gait outcomes and patient satisfaction one year after total knee arthroplasty (TKA). Methods Seventy-nine patients were evaluated before and one year after TKA using clinical gait analysis. Specific gait outcomes were analyzed: gait speed, stance phase, range of motion (ROM) knee flexion and maximal knee flexion. The exposures of interest selected for the statistical analysis were: gait speed and max...

Abstract Background Gait event detection is critical for remote gait analysis. Algorithms using a thigh-worn accelerometer for estimating spatiotemporal gait variables have demonstrated clinical utility in monitoring the gait of patients with gait and balance impairment. However, one may obtain accurate estimates of spatiotemporal variables, but with biased estimates of foot contact and foot off events. Some biomechanical analyses depend on accurate gait phase segmentation, but previous studies ...

Abstract Background Postmenopausal women are at risk of fall and fracture with the physical decline. Distal radius fracture (DRF) is considered as the primary fragility fracture, and women with this fracture showed poor results in the usual Timed Up-and-Go (TUG) test, indicating a decline in balance and physical ability. The detailed physical characteristics of female DRF patients have not been extensively examined. Research question Is the novel laser TUG system able to detect and analyze the d...

Abstract Research Objective The current study set out to determine whether individuals walking in a virtual reality environment pass through apertures made of two avatars differently than apertures created by two pole obstacles, as previously observed between pole and human obstacles in real-world environments. Methods Eleven healthy young adults wore a head-mounted virtual reality display, walked along a 10 m path and passed through a virtual aperture located 5 m from the starting location. Par...
