100th article indexed in PubMed: Ground reaction forces during walking with different load and slope combinations in rats

New Content ItemTreadmill animal models are commonly used to study effects of exercise on bone. Since mechanical loading induces bone strain, resulting in bone formation, exercise that induces higher strains is likely to cause more bone formation. In this study, Bravenboer et al., investigate the effect of slope and additional load on limb bone strain.
They conclude that walking downward has a higher impact on fore-limb bones, while walking upward is a more optimal hind-limb exercise. Additional load may have a small effect on fore-limb loading.

Aims and scope

The Journal of Experimental Orthopaedics is an international journal that aims to bridge the gap between orthopaedic basic science and the clinics and publishes papers related to the entire field of experimental orthopaedics, including physiological, pathological and therapeutic aspects of cartilage, bone, tendons and ligaments and other musculoskeletal tissues. It is the official basic science journal of ESSKA, the European Society of Sports Traumatology, Knee Surgery and Arthroscopy. The journal ensures rapid peer-review and publication of high quality papers.
