Swing limb mechanics and minimum toe clearance in people with knee osteoarthritis

Knee osteoarthritis has been shown to be a risk factor for falls. Reductions in foot clearance during the swing phase of walking can cause a trip and potentially lead to a fall. This study examined the swing phase mechanics of people with and without knee OA during walking.
