The purpose

The purpose of this study is to: 1. Analyze the short-term effects of external center of pressure manipulation of the foot in idiopathic hip osteoarthritis patients during gait on: 1. Gait parameters (spatiotemporal, kinematic, and kinetic) 2. Muscle activation patterns of the lower limbs and back 2. Analyze the long-term effects (during the period of one year) of external center of pressure manipulation of the foot in idiopathic hip osteoarthritis patients during gait on: 1. Gait parameters (spatiotemporal, kinematic, and kinetic) 2. Motor learning and muscle activation patterns 3. Energy consumption 4. Pain, physical function, and quality of life The hypotheses of the study, in reference to the aforementioned study objectives are: 1. Changes in foot center of pressure will have an immediate effect on gait parameters and muscle activation patterns of the lower limbs and back. 2. Long-term manipulation of foot center of pressure, as a result of a year-long rehabilitation program using the AposTherapy Biomechanical System, will result in improvement in gait parameters, changes in muscle activation patterns as a result of new motor learning, improvement in energy consumption, decrease in pain, improvement in physical function, and improvement in quality of life.
