Gait kinematics and kinetics are affected more by peripheral arterial disease than by age

Sara A. Myers, PhD, et al.

Approximately 8 to 12 million people in the United States are affected by peripheral arterial disease (PAD). At the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Nebraska-Western Iowa Health Care System, more than 1,000 Veterans are seen annually in our vascular surgery clinics. Vascular procedures to treat these Veterans constitute the third most common group of operations performed in VA hospitals nationwide. This disease is associated with a cardiovascular morbidity and mortality increase of three to six times compared with individuals without PAD. This research investigates the possible underdiagnosis of PAD by using advanced biomechanics techniques to compare the gait of Veterans with PAD and older adults.
