Usually, ground reaction force (GRF) is produced by two feet: an anterior leg is called as leading leg and other as trailing leg [1]. The aim of this study was to investigate the role of the leading and trailing legs’ force contribution to the control of the centre of mass (COM) descent and ascent in patients following a unilateral total hip replacement (THR) [2,3].
