Disagreement exists as to whether the individual components of the quadriceps femoris can be preferentially activated, i.e., that one muscle component is activated to a greater degree of its maximum voluntary contraction ability than the remaining components. Preferential activation of the vastus medialis (VM) might be useful in the treatment of knee(More)
The purpose of this investigation was to examine the test-retest reliability of non-normalized (absolute or raw units of mV . s) and normalized (percentage ratio) scores using integrated electromyography (IEMG) in voluntary maximal isometric contractions. Bipolar surface electrodes on the vastus medialis (VM) and vastus lateralis (VL) muscles were used to(More)
