|Abstract:||Objective: demonstrate the presence and magnitude of biomechanical variables during gait in patients with medial knee osteoarthritis (OA) and the relationship with the knee loading. Methods: Gait of 21 subjects diagnosed with medial knee OA was evaluated and compared to the control group. Results: The group with OA showed: Lower gait speed (0.8 ± 0.1 vs. 1.1 ± 0.1m/s), higher peak early (2.6 ± 1.2 vs. 0.3 ± 1.4 Nm/Kg) and late peak of the adduction moment (1.8 ± 0.7 vs. 0.9 ± 0.2 Nm/Kg), higher peak flexor moment (1.6 ± 0.9 vs. 0.6 ± 0.4 Nm/Kg), high dynamic peak varus (11.5° ± 8.3 vs. 3° ± 3.9), higher peak flexion (15.6° ± 8 vs. 9.3° to ± 4.1), with a flexion tendency (5.5° ± 8.5) in the stance phase, smaller peak of flexion (58.7° ± 13.3 vs. 67.5° ± 4.8) in the balance phase and higher peaks of external rotation (25.5° ± 12.7 vs. 0.5° ± 22.4). Conclusion: Patients with medial knee OA show changes in gait with increased external rotation, speed reduction, increased flexor moment and flexion in the stance phase, insufficient for reduction of the load.|
