The purpose of this study was to describe, interpret and compare the EMG activation patterns of ankle muscles - tibialis anterior (TA), peroneus longus (PL) and gastrocnemius lateralis (GL) - in volleyball players with and without ankle functional instability (FI) during landing after the blocking movement. Twenty-one players with FI (IG) and 19 controls(More)
OBJECTIVES To study the activation patterns of tibialis anterior, peroneus longus and gastrocnemius lateralis muscles during a lateral shuffle maneuver in volleyball players with functional instability of the ankle joint. DESIGN Observational case-control study. SETTING Research laboratory. PARTICIPANTS Sixteen players with functional instability and(More)
BACKGROUND This study evaluated the structure and amount of variability of surface electromyography (sEMG) patterns and ankle force data during low-level isometric contractions in diabetic subjects with different degrees of neuropathy. METHODS We assessed 10 control subjects and 38 diabetic patients, classified as absent, mild, moderate, or severe(More)
AIMS/HYPOTHESIS Early diagnosis of diabetic polyneuropathy (DPN) is critical for a good prognosis. We aimed to identify different groups of patients, based on the various common clinical signs and symptoms of DPN, that represent a progressive worsening of the disease before the onset of plantar ulceration or amputation. We also sought to identify the most(More)
INTRODUCTION The ankle sprain is one of the most common injuries in athletes, particularly in sports in which participants frequently jump and land on one foot like the volleyball. 90% of ankle injuries in volleyball occur during landing after a blocking maneuver. The most common complication following ankle sprains is functional ankle instability (FI) that(More)
Bases and objective: The segment most frequently injured in basketball is the ankle, being the inversion sprain the most common lesion. In order to avoid it, ankle devices are frequently used. The objective of this study was to evaluate the ground reaction force (GRF) in basketball players during jump performance in three situations: use of basketball sport(More)
Materials and methods Retrospective analysis of 195 patients. The fuzzy model determined a DPN degree score (0-10) by the combination of fuzzy sets derived from clinical variables (sensorial modalities and a set of DPN-related symptoms), using if-then rules to combine the inputs with the output sets (Mamdani process), with membership functions determined by(More)
INTRODUCTION This study evaluates the complexity of force and surface electromyography (sEMG) during knee extension and flexion at low-level isometric contractions in individuals with different degrees of diabetic peripheral neuropathy (DPN). METHODS Ten control and 38 diabetic participants performed isometric contractions at 10%, 20%, and 30% of maximal(More)
TO THE EDITOR: We read with interest the Physiology in Medicine review by Allen et al. (1) on the role of the neuromuscular consequences of diabetic neuropathy (DPN). Three main points in the review deserve attention and should be further discussed. First, DPN-related motor unit (MU) loss is suggested to be linked with the duration and severity of DPN.(More)
We investigated the muscle fiber conduction velocity (MFCV) during gait phases of the lower limb muscles in individuals with various degrees of diabetic peripheral neuropathy (DPN). Forty-five patients were classified into severity degrees of DPN by a fuzzy model. The stages were absent (n=11), mild (n=14), moderate (n=11) and severe (n=9), with 10 matched(More)
