Hip/Knee Kinematics Therapeutic Exercises
Total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is a common surgical procedure , requiring substantial post-surgical rehabilitation. Currently, it is difficult to know precisely concerning quality and quantity of rehabilitative exercises performed by TKA patients outside of the physical therapy clinic . The ultimate goal of this line of research is to leverage a novel sensing technology, we recently developed, to create an inexpensive sensing system for out-of-clinic use by TKA patients. The first step in this research process and the purpose of this study was to characterize lower extremity motion during two common post-TKA exercises (knee flexion and straight leg raise (SLR)) in an older healthy population.
