Abstract Background : Long-standing groin pain (LSGP) is a chronic painful condition resulting in both impaired performance and time loss from participation in multidirectional field sport. Research question : What are the differences in intersegmental coordination strategy and variability of trunk-pelvic and thigh coupling during change of direction in subjects with athletic LSGP and asymptomatic control subjects? Methods : A motion analysis system was used to collect 3-D kinematic data of the ...

Abstract Background Due to the high susceptivity of the walking pattern to be affected by several disorders, accurate analysis methods are necessary. Given the complexity and relevance of such assessment, the utilization of methods to facilitate it plays a significant role, provided that they do not compromise the outcomes. Research questions This paper aimed at identifying the standards for the application of adaptive predictive systems to gait analysis, given the extensive research on this fie...

Abstract Background Reduced push-off intensity during walking is thought to play an important role in age-related mobility impairment. We posit that an age-related shift toward shorter plantarflexor operating lengths during walking functionally limits force generation, and thereby the ability of those muscles to respond to increased propulsive demands during walking. Research Question To determine whether gastrocnemius muscle fascicle lengths during normal walking: (1) are shorter in older than ...

Abstract Background The impact that mechanical factors might have on gait reorganization was evaluated by the relationship between muscle mechanical capacity of isolated leg muscle groups and transition speed in previous studies. However, until now there are no studies that explored the relationship between muscle mechanical properties measured in cyclic multi-joint movements and gait transition speed. Research question What is the nature of the relationship between gait transition speed and mus...

Abstract Background There is a growing interest concerning the understanding of the sagittal configuration of the cervical spine as a clinical outcome. However, evaluating sensorimotor control and autonomic nervous system for participants with forward head posture (FHP) compared to strictly matched control participants with normal head alignment has not been adequately addressed. Methods Sensorimotor control variables include smooth pursuit neck torsion test(SPNT), Overall stability index (OSI) ...

Abstract Background Estimating muscle-tendon complex (MTC) lengths is important for planning of soft tissue surgery and evaluating outcomes, e.g. in children with cerebral palsy (CP). Conventional musculoskeletal models often represent the foot as one rigid segment, called a mono-segment foot model (mono-SFM). However, a multi-segment foot model (multi-SFM) might provide better estimates of triceps surae MTC lengths, especially in patients with foot deformities. Research question What is the eff...

Abstract Background Walking and mobility are essential for a satisfactory quality of life. However, individuals with transfemoral amputations have difficulties in preventing falls due to prosthetic knee buckling, defined as the sudden loss of postural support during weight-bearing activities. The risk of prosthetic knee buckling can be evaluated by determining the prosthetic knee angular impulse (PKAI) during the early stance phase. However, little is known about the factors associated with PKAI...

Background The fear of falling, or mobility-related anxiety, profoundly affects gait, but is challenging to study without risk to participants. Purpose: To determine the efficacy of using virtual reality (VR) to manipulate illusions of height and consequently, elevated mobility-related anxiety when turning. Moreover, we examined if mobility-related anxiety effects decline across time in VR environments as participants habituate. Methods: Altogether, 10 healthy participants (five women, mean (sta...

Abstract Introduction/Aim: Flip-flops are a popular choice of footwear for children. However, their inherent design provides minimal support to the foot and ankle and has been suggested to increase the work performed by muscles and tendon structures, potentially predisposing them to injury. Therefore, the aim of this study was to compare the length change behaviour of the medial gastrocnemius (MG) muscle fascicles and muscle tendon unit (MTU) and their mechanical function at the ankle and subtal...

Abstract Background Some patients with cerebral palsy (CP) exhibit excessive knee flexion at initial contact followed by knee hyperextension (KE) in mid-stance. Research question This study investigated the change in sagittal kinematics after distal hamstring lengthening (DHL) and triceps surae lengthening procedures in CP patients with KE, and compared it to those without KE. In addition, the risk factors for the worsening of postoperative KE were analyzed. Methods Consecutive 312 patients (596...
