sexes, it has been established that a more medially rotated femur is associated with greater amounts of valgus collapse by predisposing the femur, and thus the knee, toward greater knee valgus posture. 10 – 13 Transverse plane femoral alignment is most often quantified clinically as femoral anteversion

The purpose of this study was to formulate a predictive equation to discriminate males from females using static and dynamic lower extremity (LE) alignments. Twenty-four healthy adults volunteered to participate. Three-dimensional motion analysis was used to assess the kinematics of the right hip and knee during two functional tasks. Six measures of static LE alignment were also performed. Statistical comparisons were made between males and females for all variables. Static and dynamic variables that were significantly different by sex were entered into separate discriminant analyses for each task. The resulting equations were each able to correctly predict 87% of the subjects by sex. Fifty-eight percent and 55% of the variance was explained by sex for the vertical jump and plant & jump, respectively. The frontal plane hip angle was the best predictor of sex for both tasks. While there were statistically significant differences between the sexes for static measures of LE alignment, kinematic measures were better at discriminating between sexes.

wider pelvis and greater femoral anteversion. 37 , 38 An increase in femoral anteversion is related to an increase in hip internal rotation during gait, which may promote growth in the length of posterior hip tissue, resulting in lower hip joint stiffness. 39 Moreover, previous studies have reported

, foot pronation, Q-angle, tibial torsion, femoral anteversion, and quality movement were also assessed. A forward regression analysis was performed to analyze the relationship between physical impairment and psychological impairment on self-reported knee function. Interestingly, there was no association

. Based on these views, there appears to be little relationship between QA and rearfoot motion variables. Although a relationship between the QA and both increased tibiofemoral angle and increased femoral anteversion are found, no significant relationships between the QA and other parameters (such as
