Study on anthropometric and biomechanical characteristics of lower extremities and their effects on quadriceps angle magnitude in young males

AUTHOR(S): Nihar Ranjan Mohanty, Avinash Tiwari and Shyamal Koley
ABSTRACT:
The purpose of the present study was to see the impact of anthropometric variables and lower extremity biomechanical alignments on the magnitude of Quadriceps angle in young males. 50 young males of age group 18-28 years were selected purposively from Cuttack, Odisha, for the study. All the selected lower extremity anthropometric and anatomical alignment variables were recorded thrice and median value considered as criterion to eradicate error. Selected variables such as height, weight, Body Mass Index (BMI), total leg length, lower leg length, tibiofemoral angle, femoral ante version, Quadriceps angle, genu recurvate, tibial torsion, and navicular drop were measured on each subject following standard techniques. The Results showed right Quadriceps angle has significant positive correlation (p≤0.05) with weight and highly significant positive correlation (p≤0.01) with right Tibiofemoral angle, right Femoral ante version, and right Tibial torsion; whereas left Quadriceps angle has significant positive correlation (p≤0.05) with weight and highly significant positive correlation (p≤0.01) with left Tibiofemoral angle, left Femoral ante version, left Tibial torsion and left Navicular drop. On the basis of results of the study, it may be concluded that weight, Tibiofemoral angle, femoral ante version, Tibia torsion and Navicular drop have significant impact on the magnitude of the Quadriceps angle.
