Effects of progressive resistance strength training on knee biomechanics during single leg step-up in persons with mild knee osteoarthritis
(ELSEVIER SCI LTD, 2011)
Background: The goal of this study was to determine if increasing strength in primary knee extensors and flexors would directly affect net knee joint moments during a common functional task in persons with knee osteoarthritis. ...
The effect of locked screw angulation on the biomechanical properties of the S.P.S. Free-Block plate
Objectives: Among the locked internal fixators is one denominated S.P.S. (Synthesis Pengo System) Free-Block, which was designed with a locking ring that allows the screw to be locked and positioned obliquely. Due to the ...
Association between energy cost of walking, muscle activation, and biomechanical parameters in older female fallers and non-fallers
Objective: To determine the nervous activation, muscle strength, and biomechanical parameters that influence the cost of walking in older fallers and non-fallers. Methods: Maximal voluntary isokinetic torque was measured ...
Fetal growth restriction induces heterogeneous effects on vascular biomechanical and functional properties in guinea pigs (Cavia porcellus)
(Frontiers Research Foundation, 2017)
© 2017 Cañas, Herrera, García-Herrera, Celentano and Krause. Aim: Fetal growth restriction (FGR) is associated with a variety of cardiometabolic diseases in adulthood which could involve remodeling processes of the vascular ...
Biomechanical and perceptual evaluation of the use of a servo-controlled power-assistance system in manual wheelchair mobility
This preliminary study investigated the effect of the implementation of a servo-controlled power assisted mechanism in a manual wheelchair on the demands of the upper limb muscles and the subjects' perception about the ...
