Abstract

The effect of changing the foot progression angle on the peak knee adduction moment (KAM) during stance was investigated in 48 teenagers. They underwent gait analysis when walking in three different postures: normal walking, intentional in-toeing, and intentional out-toeing. The peak KAM when in-toeing was the highest and was statistically different from that seen in the normal walking or in the out-toeing posture. These findings may have clinical significance in adult life.
