Kinetic And Kinematic Adaptations To Use Of A Personal Lift Assist Device
The purpose of this work was to quantify the effect of the personal lift assist device (PLAD) on kinetic and kinematic variables commonly indentified as risk factors for low back pain (LBP). As such, three investigations ...
A GENERALIZED SOFTWARE SOLUTION FOR THE ESTIMATION OF JOINT MOMENTS: AN APPLICATION TO LIFTING
Objective: To develop modular software to assess angular impulse and to determine the effect of a reduced dataset on the net angular impulse acting at the L5/S1 joint. Background. With the prevalence and incidence of lower ...
A Comparative Analysis of Mark III Water Pump Carriage Systems
The purpose of this study was to assess the effectiveness and user-acceptability of three Mark 3 water pump carriage systems for the Aviation and Forest Fire Management division of the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources ...
An investigation of lower limb joint powers as a predictive measure of countermovement vertical jump height.
Measuring and tracking athletic performance is crucial to an athlete’s development and the countermovement vertical jump is often used to measure athletic performance, particularly lower limb power. The linear power developed ...
Quadriceps Avoidance Characteristics of Persons with a Reconstructed Anterior Cruciate Ligament during a Forward Lunge
Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears are injuries that often require surgery and physical therapy. Previous research have shown that patients after ACL reconstruction develop a compensatory mechanism called quadriceps ...
Hamstring Activity and Lower Extremity Loading in Knee Osteoarthritis: The Effect of Foot Rotation
Knee osteoarthritis (OA) causes more disability in community dwelling older adults than any other condition. The high costs associated with treating this disability suggest that research needs to focus on ways of preventing ...
