Walking parameters with knee muscle strength in patients with Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease type 1A.

Takeaway

  • Walking speed is positively correlated with isokinetic muscular strength (IMS) in the knees of patients with Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease type 1A (CMTA1A).

Why this matters

  • Improving knee muscle strength via an adapted rehabilitation programme could improve quality of life in patients with CMTA1A, which affects lower extremity functions.
