Stationary cycling is commonly prescribed for people with knee osteoarthritis (OA) yet anecdotal evidence suggests that for many patients, cycling tends to aggravate knee symptoms which may reduce the likelihood of cycling participation. To date, very little research has been conducted on cycling with knee OA participants and it is unclear if, and to what extent, individuals with OA cycle differently than individuals without OA. Coordination variability measures can be used to assess how an individual alters their movement from one repetition to the next, where greater variability is reflective of a healthy system. Therefore, it is possible that knee joint variability differences may exist among these populations.
