ABSTRACT

Purpose:The study was designed to investigate analysis of kinematics of lower extremity in healthy adults during walking with external loads on trunk. Methods:Fifteen healthy adults were recruited and The subjects provided written and informed consent prior to participation. They walked on a ten-meter walkway at a self-selected pace with loads of 0, 5, 10, and 15kg. They completed three trials in each condition and kinematic changes were measured. A three-dimensional motion analysis system was used to analyze lower extremity kinematic data. The data collected by each way of walking task and analyzed by One-way ANOVA. Results:There were significant differences in hip and knee joint on saggittal plane at initial contact and preswing, and significant differences in ankle joint on transverse plane at preswing. Conclusion:These findings revealed that increased external loads were changed joint angles and influenced postural strategies because of kinematic mechanism and future studies is recommended to find out prevention from damage of activities of daily living.
