Physiological cost index of walking in able-bodied adolescents and adults. Height of the Individual meters x 0. The small size of this sample probably prevented the detection of statistically significant differences in energy expenditure associated with cane length. This amount is subject to change until you make payment. Add to cart – Best Offer: An adjustable aluminum cane equipped with a telescopic system was used, and the cane length was determined for each individual as follows: II osteoarthritis of de knee.

RHR did not differ significantly among the four time points studied. Add to cart – Best Offer: These data demonstrate that small alterations in the length of canes used for weight-bearing ambulation in patients with unilateral knee osteoarthritis increase the energy expenditure measured by the physiological cost index during walking.

If we are listing more than one unit pc may not get the one pictured.

The cane length in the present study could not be fixed to an exact length, so the cane was adjusted as close as possible to the desired length. Canes are normally used on the contralateral side, and during walking, the affected lower limb is advanced together with the contralateral upper limb carrying the cane following the normal gait pattern.

Several authors have reported that canes used for weight-bearing ambulation lead to greater energy expenditure, but none of these studies were carried out on patients with knee OA.

The American College of Rheumatology criteria for ;ci classification and reporting of osteoarthritis of the knee. Mean cane length was We found that WHR was significantly higher while walking with a cane than without a cane.

Gait energy cost was estimated using the physiological cost index, and results were compared. Efficiency of assisted ambulations determined by oxygen consumption measurement.

Energy expenditure during cane-assisted gait in patients with knee osteoarthritis

In the present study, patients were instructed to walk at their normal velocity; however, some authors have suggested the establishment of a gait speed, since this velocity has a linear relationship with energy expenditure.

The clinical characteristics of this population are summarized in Table 1. Nonetheless, this phenomenon probably did not influence one results, as patients were tested in four different situations.
