Figure 2

Task requirements and capability gaps during ADL. The task requirements for the ADL are shown in black (task requirements). The capability gaps for the different levels of muscle weakness are shown in blue. Gait is measured at self-selected speed and the sit-to-stand and stand-to-sit movements are measured with a chair of 100% knee height. The peak ID moment for the DOF were compared between the different movements using one way repeated measure Anova. A Tukey's hsd test is used for pairwise comparison when the one way repeated measures Anova test was significant significance threshold 5%. For the selected DOFs, the movement with the highest task requirements is marked with a red square (pā€‰<ā€‰0.05).
