6- week Biofeedback Gait Retraining Programme for Knee Osteoarthritis by Yi Wan

20 February @ 2:00 pm 3:00 pm

Gait Training

Gait retraining is a common therapeutic intervention that can alter gait characteristics to reduce knee loading in knee osteoarthritis populations. It can be enhanced when combined with biofeedback that provides real-time information about the users’ gait, either directly (i.e. knee moment feedback) or indirectly (i.e. gait pattern feedback).

Join PhD researcher Yi Wan as she discusses her recent study evaluating the acute (6 weeks of training) and chronic (1 month post training) effects of biofeedback based on personalised gait patterns to reduce knee loading and pain in people with knee osteoarthritis, as well as examine if more than one session of knee moment feedback is needed to optimise the gait patterns.

The Bath Medical Museum and the University of Bath have collaborated to create a spring series of short talks on various aspects of medical research.

Yi Wan is a Postgraduate Research Student and Doctor of Philosophy. She specialises in biomechanics, knees and osteoarthritis.
