Experimental Evaluation of Computationally Predicted Changes in Knee Loads Resulting from Medial Thrust Gait
American Society of Mechanical Engineers 2012 Summer Bioengineering Conference
Abnormal loading of the medial compartment of the knee is believed to be a contributing factor to the development of medial compartment knee osteoarthritis (OA). Treatment strategies for patients with medial knee OA include both invasive (i.e., surgery) and non-invasive (e.g., gait modification) options. A variety of modified gait patterns have been proposed as non-invasive treatments for patients with medial knee OA.
