In vivo kinematics of functional ankle instability patients and lateral ankle sprain copers during stair descent

Shengxuan Cao, Chen Wang, Xin Ma, Xu Wang, Jiazhang Huang, Chao Zhang, Li Chen, Xiang Geng, Kan Wang
2019 Journal of Orthopaedic Research  
A dual fluoroscopic imaging system was used to analyze the tibiotalar and subtalar joint kinematics during stair descent. Five key poses of stair descent were analyzed.  ...  Kinematic data from six degrees of freedom were calculated utilizing a solid modeling software. The range of motion and joint positions in each degree of freedom were compared among the three groups.  ...  However, these techniques are less accurate in investigating joint translation of the tibiotalar and the subtalar joints. 14 The dual fluoroscopic imaging system is a noninvasive technique to study in  ...
