We hypothesized that adding haptic input would not affect step parameters but would improve balance control as indicated by a decreased COM acceleration and increased margin of stability (MOS), decreased COM and MOS variability, and a decrease in lower limb

Dynamic single-leg control of the lower limb during running and related sports, such as football and field hockey, may contribute to the development and persistence of lower limb pain and injury. 1 One of the most prominent features of poor single-leg control is dynamic (or apparent) knee valgus

, the senior authors (A.J.H. and F.V.W.) conducted a feasibility randomized control trial (RCT) to investigate the effectiveness of two interventions: a FMS-based sport skill training program ( BeFAST ) and a lower limb strength training program ( BeSTRONG ) in children with CP (ClinicalTrials

Several studies have reported the vertical stiffness for the whole lower limb and joint stiffness for the ankle and knee joint during locomotion. 2 These can be affected by different surfaces 3 and footwear. 4 In addition, an increase in knee joint stiffness and leg stiffness has been shown to

conditioning in lower limbs. Bouillon et al 13 indicated that higher activation in gluteus maximus and gluteus medius was found in step-down than in lunge. In addition, body position may influence the muscle activation in lunge. Farrokhi et al 14 indicated that compared with lunge at neutral trunk position

hierarchical clustering to classify the sit-to-walk movement and detect asymmetries in the movements of people with and without physical disabilities of the lower limbs. Even though trials are grouped through the clustering process, the movement strategy prescribed to each cluster needs to be identified

At the beginning of each intervention, a 5-minute general active ROM for upper and lower extremities was initiated. Then, participants underwent the pretest in the order of flexibility, lower-limb power

The single-leg squat task is used as a rehabilitative exercise 1 , 2 or as a screening tool 3 , 4 for the functional movement of the lower limb. The presence of pathology influences the way in which the single-leg squat is performed. On performing the single-leg squat, individuals with
