Highlights • Hip abductor tendon repair resulted in less pain, improved strength and walk capacity. • Hip abductor tendon repair reduced the incidence of a positive Trendelenburg sign.
Highlights • Knee osteoarthritis subjects exhibit impairment in muscle strength of the ankle. • Mild osteoarthritis subjects had lower plantar flexion torque than healthy subjects.
Abstract Achilles tendon (AT) compliance can affect the generation and transmission of triceps surae muscle forces, and thus has important biomechanical consequences for walking performance.
Abstract This study aims to quantify the biomechanical properties of murine temporomandibular joint (TMJ) articular disc and condyle cartilage using AFM-nanoindentation.
Abstract People suffering from locomotor impairment find turning manoeuvres more challenging than straight-ahead walking.
Abstract Spontaneous rupture of the Achilles tendon is increasingly common in the middle aged population.
Globally, podiatric medicine has evolved significantly in both its depth and scope of practice.
Highlights • Initial stability of Contour cup is achieved by bone allograft and flange screws. • Transacetabular screw could not improve initial stability.
Highlights • Subjects pre- and post-total hip arthroplasty moved with interlimb asymmetry. • We examined the acute effect of weight bearing visual feedback on movement symmetry.
Highlights • Femoral torsion has a significant impact on the patellofemoral joint. • Increased internal femoral torsion produces a lateralizing force on the patella.
