Rate of force development and muscle activation of trunk muscles in women with and without low back pain: A case-control study
(Churchill Livingstone, 2017-07-01)
Objective: To evaluate the rate of force development (RFD) and the rate of electromyography rise (RER) of global and local trunk muscles in women with and without low back pain. Design: Cross-sectional study. Setting: ...
Hip muscles strength and activation in older fallers and non-fallers
(Ios Press, 2014-01-01)
BACKGROUND: Hip muscles dysfunction may challenge postural control mechanisms and compromise the individual in imbalance situations.OBJECTIVE: To compare hip muscles strength, power and activation between older female ...
Peak torque, reaction time, and rate of torque development of hip abductors and adductors of older women
(Taylor & Francis Inc, 2016-01-02)
Impaired muscle function at the hip has been implicated to be a major factor related to falls in older adults. Therefore, the aim of this study was to analyze the rate of torque development (RTD), reaction time (RT), and ...

Objective To analyze the association of insufficient physical activity in different domains with sarcopenia or sarcopenic obesity in patients aged >= 50 years. Methods The sample consisted of 770 males and females. Sarcopenia ...
The Effects Of Training By Virtual Reality Or Gym Ball On Pelvic Floor Muscle Strength In Postmenopausal Women: A Randomized Controlled Trial
(AssociaÃ§Ã£o Brasileira Pesquisa PÃ³s-GraduaÃ§Ã£o FisioterapÃa-ABRAPG-FTSÃ£o Carlos, 2016)
Are early and late rate of force development differently influenced by fast-velocity resistance training?
This study examined the effect of fast-velocity concentric isokinetic resistance training (FV) on the rate of force development (RFD) at early (<100 ms) and late phases (>100 ms) of rising muscle force. Nine men participated ...
Evaluation of rotator cuff muscle strength in healthy individuals
(Sociedade Brasileira de Ortopedia e Traumatologia, 2015-06-01)
OBJECTIVE: To compare the strength generated by the rotator muscles of the shoulder joint between the right upper limb and left upper limb among healthy individuals. METHODS: To evaluate the muscle strength of upper limbs ...
Shoulder isokinetic profile of male handball players of the Brazilian National Team
(Associação Brasileira de Pesquisa e Pós-Graduação em Fisioterapia, 2013-12-01)
BACKGROUND:Data obtained on an isokinetic dynamometer are useful to characterize muscle status and have been reported in muscle imbalance studies in different types of sport. However, few studies have assessed elite handball ...
