Training induced reduction of lower- limb joint loads during locomotion in obese children

The aim of the Childrens’ Knees study is to analyse the changes in biomechanical gait characteristics of obese children and adolescents and furthermore to develop a specific exercise programme for this target group based on the discovered results. The exercise programme will be focused on neuromuscular and muscle strength training of lower extremity muscles and should reduce joint loads at hip and knee of obese children and adolescents.
