Karia M, Masjedi M, Duffell L, Kotti M, McGregor Aet al., 2018, Comparison of gait biomechanics in patients with and without knee osteoarthritis during different phases of gait, Journal of Orthopaedics, Trauma and Rehabilitation, Vol: 25, Pages: 11-15, ISSN: 2210-4917

Background: This study aimed to characterise knee adduction angles (KAA) and knee adduction moments (KAM) and compare this with foot centre of pressure (COP) in volunteers with and without knee osteoarthritis (OA). Methods: A total of 108 participants were recruited; 84 had no known pathology, 18 had medial knee OA, and six had lateral knee OA. Linear regression was used to determine correlations between the normalised COP, KAM, and KAA during each phase of gait for all participants. Results: The first phase of gait demonstrated significant differences between groups for all measures: KAA in all phases, COP in phases one and two, and KAM in phase one only. Conclusion: The largest mechanical changes are seen in the first phase of gait in osteoarthritic patients. Although COP is an easy to measure tool, it is not as sensitive as KAA and did not demonstrate a significant difference between healthy and medial OA patients.

Wong JKL, McGregor AH, 2018, Spatiotemporal gait changes in healthy pregnant women and women with pelvic girdle pain: A systematic review., Journal of Back and Musculoskeletal Rehabilitation, ISSN: 1053-8127

INTRODUCTION: Gait is affected in women with pelvic girdle pain (PGP), a musculoskeletal condition affecting 20% of pregnant women. Whilst there is evidence of spatiotemporal changes in gait during healthy pregnancy, less is known in relation to women with PGP. Appreciating gait characteristics during healthy pregnancy could inform our understanding of the role of gait in PGP. PURPOSE: The purpose of this review was to systematically analyse differences in the spatiotemporal parameters of gait in healthy pregnant women and those with PGP, and to make recommendations to improve research methods in investigating gait in PGP women. METHODS: The review was undertaken following the PRISMA guidelines. Three databases and pre-existing literature were electronically and manually searched. Study selection and data extraction were conducted by two reviewers. Quality assessment was performed using the NHLBI tool for Observational Cohort and Cross-sectional Studies. RESULTS: The search returned 2925 results. Fourteen studies were selected for data extraction. Twelve studies investigated gait in healthy pregnant women and two in PGP women. Studies employed either a cohort or cross-sectional design and used various methods to assess gait. Three, nine and two studies were high, medium and low in quality, respectively. Direct comparisons between studies were impeded due to incomparable gestational time-points investigated, in addition to variations in gait parameters and definitions used. CONCLUSION: Evidence from studies on healthy pregnant women could inform future research on PGP women, for which current evidence is scarce. We recommend the standardisation of critical factors to allow inter-study comparisons for a meta-analysis.
