BACKGROUND Patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) are subject to progressive reduction of muscle mass and strength. The aim of this study was to assess muscle forces and electromyography (EMG) indices in short and long-term diabetes during an isokinetic exercise. METHODS The peak torque, work, mean power frequency (MPF) and root mean square (RMS)(More)
BACKGROUND Considering the higher activity of mirror neuron system in females, they frequently have better performance in empathy, interpersonal sensitivity, and emotional recognition compared to males. OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to assess whether gender difference in neuroanatomy of the human mirror neuron system has any impact on(More)
Background and purpose: The effect of action observation on symmetry of weight distribution and stability indices in semi-dynamic stability in healthy older people is not identified yet. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of action observation on the symmetry of weight distribution in lower limbs and stability indices in semi-dynamic(More)
Background and purpose: Stroke patients often suffer from several impairments such as sensory, motor, cognitive and emotional disorders. These conditions cause limitations in performing daily activities. This study sought to assess the effect of action observation and imitation on improvement of functional activity indices in hemiparetic patients based on(More)
BACKGROUND Type 2 diabetes (T2DM) patients are subject to muscle weakness. OBJECTIVES The aim of the study was an assessment of electromyographic (EMG) activity of knee muscles during isometric maximal voluntary contraction in the different disease durations of T2DM. METHODS Eighteen patients with less than 10 years and twelve patients with more than 10(More)
