Non-Motorised Treadmill Locomotion Could Provide Osteoporotic Patients a Means of Stimulating Bone Maintenance

Writer:realleaderfitnessDate:2017-2-14 08:29:07
Despite generating large reductions in peak acceleration, non-motorised treadmill conditions locomotion could potentially initiate skeletal adaptations at the hip, which for osteoporotic patients could provide a means of stimulating bone maintenance without risk of osteoporotic fractures from high impact activity. This warrants further investigation as debate over the main stressor for bone adaptation continues and data from EMG studies are yet to show causal evidence for bone adaptation. No statistical difference was observed between RF EMG in the overground and motorised treadmill (-1% lower) conditions. This is contrary to previous studies,  where up to 130% larger RF EMG values were reported during the motorised treadmill condition while walking. These differences are possibly due to walkway limitations (< 8 m), an elliptical walkway or inconsistent footwear.
