How do low horizontal forces produce disproportionately high torques in human locomotion? 2011 54518 Although horizontal ground forces are only ~15% of vertical forces they account for 47% and 33% of the metabolic cost in walking and running. To explain these disproportionately high metabolic costs we hypothesized that low horizontal ground forces g...
The Intensive Diet and Exercise for Arthritis (IDEA) trial: design and rationale 2011 54518 Background: Obesity is the most modifiable risk factor and dietary induced weight loss potentially the best nonpharmacologic intervention to prevent or to slow osteoarthritis (OA) disease progression. We are currently conducting a study to test the h...
Teager-Kaiser Operator improves the accuracy of EMG onset detection independent of signal-to-noise ratio 2011 54518 A temporal analysis of electromyographic (EMG) activity has widely been used for non-invasive study of muscle activation patterns. Such an analysis requires robust methods to accurately detect EMG onset. We examined whether data conditioning suppleme...
