Characterization of sagittal plane calcaneal rotation and its relationship to the medial longitudinal arch during the midstance phase of gait.Download
Rearfoot motion during gait may influence athletic footwear choices and injury prevention, yet rearfoot motion during stance has not been fully characterized. Rearfoot pronation is typically used to categorize arch types into structural and functional groups, yet the amount of rearfoot plantar...
The objective of this research was to study the work performed and distribution of work across the lower extremity in various landing tasks. Ten women performed jump landing and weightlifting tasks recorded in a motion analysis laboratory. Joint angles and moments were determined, from which...
Previous research on foot and ankle mechanics has shown that weight bearing leg dorsiflexion range of motion is positively correlated to calcaneal plantar flexion. The gastrocnemius muscle promotes while the plantar aponeurosis and plantar intrinsic muscles restrict calcaneal plantar flexion....
Preliminary Analysis of a Randomized Parallel Trial: A 10-Week Training Program Comparing Traditional and Single-Foot Elevated Full Squats in ACL Injured PersonsDownload
Quadriceps atrophy and weakness is a common sequela following ACL injury. Restoring quadriceps function, defined as coordination, size and strength, is imperative for individuals to return to activity to the same level prior to injury. Current rehabilitation programs are unable to fully restore...
The purpose of this study was to evaluate muscular effort during the squat, a popular resistance training exercise for the triceps surae, quadriceps, hamstrings, and gluteus maximus. Ten females completed deep barbell squats, descending beyond a parallel thigh position, of increasing loads....
The Effects of Varying Fibre Composition on Simulated SEMG Signals in the Time and Frequency DomainsDownload
Whether SEMG can be used as a tool to estimate muscle fibre type concentrations remains an interesting question in muscle physiology. It is speculated that fast twitch motor units may have increased conduction velocities and that this may lead to an increased SEMG mean power frequency when...
