Threshold of equinus which alters biomechanical gait parameters in children

Threshold of equinus which alters biomechanical gait parameters in children Laetitia Houx, Mathieu Lempereur, Olivier Rémy-Néris, Sylvain Brochard Gait & Posture; Article in Press Quote: The main aim of this study was to define the threshold angle of equinus beyond which significant changes in 3D lower limb kinematics and kinetics occur in typically developing children and to describe these changes.A customized orthosis was fitted on the right ankle of 10 typically developing children and was adjusted to +10° ankle dorsiflexion, 0°, −10°, −20° plantarflexion and maximum plantarflexion. Gait was analyzed using an optoelectronic system.
