Samenvatting

Introduction Lateral trunk sway has never been assessed with an accelerometer in patients before and after total knee arthroplasty (TKA). Therefore, the purpose of this study is to determine the effect of a TKA-implant on lateral trunk sway amplitude with an accelerometer before and six weeks after TKA.
Method 11 patients were assessed before and six weeks after TKA. During gait analysis, patients walked 50 meters twice. The lateral trunk sway amplitude was determined by using a DynaPort Hybrid. In this way, accelerometer and gyroscope data were collected. Data analysis was performed with Matlab (R2010a, MATLAB©, Mathworks).
Results No significant difference was found in lateral trunk sway before and six weeks after TKA. In three patients, the lateral trunk sway angle decreased six weeks after surgery.
Conclusion No significant difference is found in lateral trunk sway before and six weeks after TKA. Further research is needed wherein knee adduction moment, muscle strength of the hip abductors and lateral trunk sway should be assessed.
