The effect of unweighting on pain and gait pattern in individuals with various knee pathologies.

 

 Very little research has been performed using the Alter-G Treadmill. The purpose of this study is to utilize the Alter-G treadmill while using motion analysis software to compare gait of the affected limb to the contralateral limb as well as assess pain levels of subjects with unilateral painful knee pathologies. Subjects will be unweighted to varying degrees of body weight while walking at a static, self-selected, normal speed.
