Effects of augmented local abdominal activation patterns on lower extremity biomechanics during landing in males and females 2005 1531 "This research assessed changes in lower extremity biomechanics as a result of augmented local abdominal contractions during double leg landings. The study design followed a two-day (control and intervention days) within subject model in which two c...
Energy absorption as a predictor of leg impedance in highly trained females 2006 728 Although leg spring stiffness represents active muscular recruitment of the lower extremity during dynamic tasks such as hopping and running, the joint-specific characteristics comprising the damping portion of this measure, leg impedance, are uncert...
Kinematic analysis of functional lower extremity perturbations 2004 730 Background. Sudden changes in direction on a single weight-bearing-limb are commonly associated with injury to the lower extremity. The purposes of this study were to assess the between day reliability of hip, knee, and ankle kinematic displacements ...
Low levels of anterior tibial loading enhance knee extensor reflex response characteristics 2005 613 We examined whether neuromuscular reflexes were altered with anterior loads applied to the tibiofemoral joint. A ligament testing device was modified by attaching a reflex hammer to a steel mounted frame to illicit a patellar tendon tap, while anteri...
Sex differences in lower extremity biomechanics during single leg landings 2007 2409 Background. Females have an increased incident rate of anterior cruciate ligament tears compared to males. Biomechanical strategies to decelerate the body in the vertical direction have been implicated as a contributing cause. This study determined i...
Sex specific abdominal activation strategies during landing 2007 791 Control of the trunk segment in landing has been implicated as a contributing factor to the higher incidence of anterior cruciate ligament injuries in females than in males. Investigating the sex-specific abdominal activation strategies during landin...
