Sex-related differences in muscle co-activation in individuals with knee osteoarthritis

Research output: Contribution to journalMeeting abstract

Abstract

Sex-related differences in muscle function have been well established in healthy individuals. In individuals with knee osteoarthritis (KOA), impairments in muscle function such as muscle weakness and high muscle co-activation have also been demonstrated. Muscle dysfunction has been shown to be a strong contributor to poor physical function and low health-related quality of life in patients with KOA. The purpose of this study was, therefore, to analyse sex and osteoarthritis-related differences in muscle function, to establish to what extent both sex and disease status contribute to muscle dysfunction.
