Paraspinal muscle reflex dynamics.
Neuromuscular control of spinal stability may be represented as a control system wherein the paraspinal muscle reflex acts as feedback response to kinetic and kinematic disturbances of the trunk. TheExpand

Angular momentum of walking at different speeds.
Recently, researchers in robotics have used regulation of the angular momentum of body segments about the total body center of mass (CoM) to develop control strategies for bipedal gait. This work wasExpand

The effects of ankle foot orthoses on energy recovery and work during gait in children with cerebral palsy.
BACKGROUND Studies suggest that 50% of children with cerebral palsy are prescribed ankle foot orthoses. One of the aims of ankle foot orthosis use is to aid in walking. This research examined theExpand
