This Week's Presentation
This week's seminar series features Dr. Namwoong Kim, from the University of Nebraska at Omaha. Kim's presentation is titled "Reducing Joint Loading Asymmetry Following ACL Reconstruction."
Abnormal movement patterns that offload the surgical knee persist over time in individuals post anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR). Individuals post ACLR exhibit asymmetries in vertical ground reaction force (vGRF) and center of pressure (COP) location. To address these asymmetrical loading patterns during bilateral tasks, we used visual biofeedback strategies incorporating vGRF and COP information to investigate if visual biofeedback strategies can improve weight bearing asymmetry and joint loading asymmetry in individuals post ACLR and recreational athletes.
