Sit-to-stand transfer mechanics in healthy older adults: A comprehensive investigation of a portable lifting seat device.
(Taylor & Francis, 2014)
Purpose: To evaluate lower extremity mechanics and muscle activation associated with the sit-to-stand transfer using a portable lifting-seat device and to compare these data to an unassisted transfer in healthy young and ...
Hip abductor function in individuals with medial knee osteoarthritis: Implications for medial compartment loading during gait
Background Hip abductor muscles generate moments of force that control lower extremity frontal plane motion. Strengthening these muscles has been a recent trend in therapeutic intervention studies for knee osteoarthritis. ...
Age-related changes in trunk neuromuscular activation patterns during a controlled functional transfer task include amplitude and temporal synergies
While healthy aging is associated with physiological changes that can impair control of trunk motion, few studies examine how spinal muscle responses change with increasing age. This study examined whether older (over 65 ...
Temporal Patterns of the Trunk Muscles Remain Altered in a Low Back–Injured Population Despite Subjective Reports of Recovery
Objective To compare temporal activation patterns from 24 abdominal and lumbar muscles between healthy subjects and those who reported recovery from recent low back injury (LBI). Design Cross-sectional comparative ...
