The aim of this study was to determine whether objective biomechanical assessment could be useful in measuring improvements in strength, gait, balance and functional performance in participants, after an 8-week FIT Teens program.
Eleven participants were required to complete a pre- and post-treatment assessment of biomechanics with a trained physiologist.
Walking gait was analysed under two conditions: a) self-selected pace and b) standardised pace (1.2 meters/second) at 240 Hz.
Isokinetic knee strength was assessed using the Biodex System II. Peak torques of knee extension and knee flexion were recorded.
