Introduction. The aim of the study was to present the biomechanical aspects of move and evaluation of these findings in the clinical practice on the example of examination of gait’s kinematics in patients before and after endoprotezoplasty. Material and methods. I examined subjects with osteoarthrosis admitted to the Department of Orthopedics, Medical University of Gdańsk. The total hip replacement was supposed to be used as the medical treatment in the all groups of patients. The standard, commercial computer program was used for the biomechanical analysis of the move. I compared the results taken before, and one year after the total hip replacement as the follow up. Results and conclusions. Results of my investigations show the significant impairment of gait in patients with degenerative hip disease. Total hip replacement improved significantly the way of walk in the group of patients with degenerative hip disease, but the move was still not as good as the gait in healthy people.
