Abstract

Objective: the purpose of this study was to introduce new procedure to determine the magnitude of functional recovery after knee surgery. Design: we compared the performance in the leg extension test and the response in the sEMG activity to vibration in the operated to the non-operated leg. Thirty-eight patients with knee operation and 14 healthy subjects participated in these experiments. Results: during leg extension test, the mechanical power of the operated leg showed a lower value (P
