  Baseline Characteristics

Population Description
Explanation of how the number of participants for analysis was determined. Includes whether analysis was per protocol, intention to treat, or another method. Also provides relevant details such as imputation technique, as appropriate.
The objective of this study was to determine whether individualized gait training is more effective than usual care for reducing mobility disability and pain in individuals with symptomatic knee osteoarthritis.

Reporting Groups
Gait The gait participants were randomized and attended 24 biweekly 45-minute sessions directed by a physical therapist, which were composed of guided strategies to optimize knee movements during treadmill walking, using computerized motion analysis with visual biofeedback.
Control The control participants received their usual care for symptomatic knee osteoarthritis (OA) through their usual healthcare providers and were not asked to make changes to their lifestyle.Usual care for these subjects may have included a yearly visit with their physician, use of pain medications for knee symptoms, knee surgery, and/or physical therapy.
