How much flexion do we need at the knee during swing in normal gait?
How much hip flexion/extension do we need in normal gait?
flexion = 30 degrees during IC and TSw
extension = 20 degrees during TS
Why do we get 10 degrees more extension at the thigh (20 degrees) vs at the hip (10 degrees)?
because of the anterior tilt and external rotation of the pelvis, allowing increased extension of the thigh
Eversion peaks during what part of the gait cycle?
