It seems that by involving a greater number of muscle fibers of the muscle spindle and through the benefit from elastic characteristics of muscles, Traband training can result in different functional adaptations in muscles. The study aimed to investigate the effect of eight weeks of training with and without Traband on a range of motion, proprioception, strength, and quality of life in middle-aged inactive women with knee osteoarthritis.
A total of 30 individuals (42.89±5.43 years, height 162.63±3.78 cm, weight 58.08±4.49 kg, and body weight 21.99±1.89 kg/m2) were selected as a sample and randomly divided into three groups of 10 Traband, without Traband, and control. KOOS questionnaire was completed before the training protocols and range of motion, knee proprioception, and muscle strength of legs and lower legs were measured. At the end of the eighth week of the test, measurements were repeated as posttest. Analysis of covariance was used to check the results. Also, the t-test was run for before and after the test comparison, at a significance level of P ≤ 0/05.
Comparison of the Traband group with the control group without Traband showed that there was a significant difference in the range of motion, profound sense, knee opener muscle strength, and quality of life(P < 0/05).
The results showed that exercise with Traband by patients with osteoarthritis is completely feasible and effective, and the exercise is likely a safe and effective exercise to improve proprioception, range of motion, muscle strength, and quality of life in women with knee osteoarthritis.
