The purpose of this study was to examine whether fatigue of postural muscles might influence the coordination between segmental posture and movement. Seven healthy adults performed series of fifteen fast wrist flexions and extensions while being instructed to keep a dominant upper limb posture as constant as possible. These series of voluntary movements(More)
Six sitting healthy subjects were instructed to keep a constant upper limb posture while performing wrist flexions and extensions. Acceleration of the wrist, elbow and shoulder joints, and surface electromyograms (EMGs) of the upper limb's main flexors and extensors were studied. Results indicated the existence of anticipatory (APA) and corrective postural(More)
This study re-investigates the characteristics of segmental postural adjustments associated with rapid mono-articular movements and analyses their dependence on initial postural conditions. Subjects performed rapid voluntary wrist flexions and extensions while maintaining their upper limb posture as stable as possible, with or without an elbow support.(More)
