Differences in Abdominal Muscle Activation Patterns of Younger and Older Adults Performing an Asymmetric Leg-Loading Task
Objectives: To determine whether differences exist between younger (20-50 years) and older adults ( 65 years) in abdominal muscle amplitudes, temporal patterns, and threedimensional (3D) pelvic motion, while performing ...
The interpretation of abdominal wall muscle recruitment strategies change when the electrocardiogram (ECG) is removed from the electromyogram (EMG)
The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of the ECG artifact on low-level trunk muscle activation amplitudes and assess the effectiveness of two methods used to remove the ECG. Simulations were performed and ...
Electromyographic assessment of trunk muscle activation amplitudes during a simulated lifting task using pattern recognition techniques
This study sought to determine the patterns of neuromuscular response from 24-trunk muscle sites during a symmetrical lift and replace task. Surface electromyograms (EMG) and kinematic variables were recorded from 29 healthy ...
Explaining the hip adduction moment variability during gait: Implications for hip abductor strengthening
Background There is emerging interest in hip abductor function during gait and its potential relationship to knee joint pathology. During gait, the hip abductor muscles are primarily responsible for generating moments of ...
