The purpose of this study is to assess the basic gait abnormalities of patients operated on by arthrodesis on the hip or in the knee or ankle. In the past 20-30 years joint arthrodesis surgery was a common treatment following poliomelytis, RA, chronic osteomielytis, hip dysplasia (HD), arthrosis, etc. The trials were performed at a self-selected walking speed. The main compensatory mechanisms that were found in hip, knee, and ankle joint arthrodesis patients are discussed.
