Sensorimotor deficiencies following total joint replacement often lead to coordinative disturbance and loss of muscular power which has a negative influence on security of gait, especially in the elderly. Based on the process of rehabilitation of knee-prothesis recipiants, changes in gait pattern are described and persistant coordinative and muscular deficiencies shown. Further on effects of special coordinative training are presented. The collected data indicates the economization of gait and the reduction of sensorimotor deficiencies towards the end of rehabilitation. A definite influence of the coordinative training that was added to the basic programme could not be shown because of the studies time limit. Coordinative training should therefore be given more attention during stationary rehabilitation and continued in rehabilitative sport programms beyond this period.
