Hi all,

Does anyone know of any studies regarding trunk kinematics and/or kinetics
during descent of stairs? I know some work was done on level gait, but
haven't found anything on stair ascent or descent. I'm especially
interested in trunk compensation for knee pain when descending stairs.

Thanks in advance.
