Training induced reduction of lower- limb joint loads during locomotion in obese children
The aim of the Childrens’ Knees study is to analyse the changes in biomechanical gait characteristics of obese children and adolescents and furthermore to develop a specific exercise programme for this target group based on the discovered results. The exercise programme will be focused on neuromuscular and muscle strength training of lower extremity muscles and should reduce joint loads at hip and knee of obese children and adolescents.
Gait & Posture – Paper accepted/in Childrensknees, News /by Brian Horsak
Great news! Once again, a paper was accepted for publication in the Journal of Gait & Posture. The title of our lovely paper is: “Reliability of joint kinematic calculations based on direct kinematic and inverse kinematic models in obese children”. This article reports the reliability of kinematic data derived from inverse-kinematic modelling performed in OpenSim. This […]
