Muscle fatigue can influence the various mechanisms that regulate balance. Few studies have investigated the effects of trunk extensor muscle fatigue on postural control. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the impact of trunk extensor fatigue during a one-leg balance test in young and elderly adults, as well as to determine the time necessary to(More)
BACKGROUND Clinical and laboratory methods have been developed to assess the different dimensions of postural control with the aim to increase the clinical relevance of decisions about balance deficit. OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to correlate the force platform measurements with two functional tests used to evaluate balance in elderly. (More)
The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of an additional set of exhaustive exercise before traditional hypertrophic training on quadriceps muscle performance in young men. Subjects performed maximal dynamic strength (1RM), local muscular endurance (LME), and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) tests before and after an 8-week hypertrophic training(More)
[Purpose] The aim of this study was to compare age-related differences in balance and anthropometric posture measurements of the foot and to determine any relationship between them. [Subjects and Methods] Sixty-eight older and 42 younger adults participated in this study. Foot posture was tested for four domains: 1) hallux flexion and extension range of(More)
