Stiff-knee gait (SKG) is commonly encountered in clinic; many other gait abnormalities are seen together with this pathology. Simulation studies revealed that diminished knee flexion (KF) velocity and increased knee extension moments are strongly related with SKG. This study aimed to determine whether tiptoe walking and hip-knee flexion velocity reduction causes SKG pattern in healthy participants.
