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 ...
Characterisation of trunk muscle activation amplitude patterns during a simulated checkstand operation with continuously changing flexor and lateral moment demands
(Taylor & Francis, 2010-04)
While the typical physical exposure to modern-day workers has changed from heavy to low level repetitive demands, there is limited research that examines light occupations. This study examined trunk muscle recruitment ...
Temporal coactivation of abdominal muscles during dynamic stability exercises
(Wolters Kluwer, 2010-05)
The purpose of this study was to determine abdominal muscle temporal responses to a leg-loading exercise protocol and if differences exist between those able and unable to minimize lumbar-pelvic motion during this protocol. ...
Changes in electromyographic activity of trunk muscles within the sub-acute phase for individuals deemed recovered from a low back injury
Evidence indicates that previous low back injury (LBI) is a strong predictor for re-injury. The purpose of this study was to examine whether neuromuscular patterns remain altered in a LBI group who were deemed recovered. ...
The Effect of Total Knee Arthroplasty on Knee Joint Kinematics and Kinetics During Gait
This study determined how total knee arthroplasty (TKA) altered knee motion and loading during gait. Three-dimensional kinematic and kinetic gait patterns of 42 patients with severe knee osteoarthritis were collected 1 ...
Pre-operative muscle activation patterns during walking are associated with TKA tibial implant migration.
Background Gait biomechanical variables have been associated with total knee arthroplasty tibial implant migration measured with Radiostereometric Analysis (RSA), but no studies have examined the role of the periarticular ...
Obesity is associated with prolonged activity of the quadriceps and gastrocnemii during gait
Purpose: To examine the effect of obesity and its potential interaction with knee OA presence on the electromyography patterns of the major knee joint periarticular muscles during walking. Scope: One hundred and eighteen ...
Living with a Neurological Condition - Strategies to Self-Manage Cognitive Changes
The Living with a Neurological Condition or LINC Project is a national study to learn about the everyday lives of Canadians living with a neurological condition - as they work, go to school, raise families, and participate ...
We spoke with 47 young adults between the ages of 17 and 26 who live with a neurological condition. This Fact Sheet details their experience.
