Abstract

The kinematics of walking on treadmill were collected and the 3D trajectory of the body centre of mass was computed in subjects suffering from mono-lateral knee osteoarthritis, before and after total knee arthroplasty. Experimental data showed after 6 months from surgery significant improvements in many biomechanical parameters as gait symmetry indices and total work done.
