Dear Biomech-list members,

we did kinematic gait analysis in patients with total knee replacement 3
weeks after surgery.

Test-Retest conditions:
- Patients were tested before and after isokinetic open chain exercises at
60 and 180/sec in concentric mode.

- Between test and retest patients had 10 isokinetic training sessions
within 2 weeks.


Results:
1.We found significant correlations between sagittal knee motion in swing
phase (angle, angular velocity) and isokinetic peak torque of knee extensors
(p
