  • Knee moments

    Hello,

    Can anybody help me. I would like to know the maximum flexing knee moment
    experienced during the stance phase of gait (natural cadence) for a child (7 -
    10 years of age).

    I have seen figures quoted in the range 0.6+- 0.04 Nm per kg flexion and 0.3
    +- 0.03Nm per kg val/var for adults (Winter, I believe) , but I do not know
    how applicable this is for a child. Would there be any variation?

    Additionally, is there a simple way of relating age to weight for this age
    group?

    My application for this data is a KAFO design (non-weight relieving).

    Thanks
