The occurrence of fatigue in triceps surae (TS) muscles during sustained plantar flexion contraction is investigated by means of the RMS electromyogram (EMG) and the instantaneous median frequency (IMF) of the short time Fourier transform (STFT). Six male subjects realized a 40% maximal plantar flexion isometric voluntary contraction until fatigue in two(More)
This study sought to compare the myoelectric activity of the hip adductors (HAs) and rectus femoris (RF) when the hip was in a neutral position or externally rotated by 30° or 50° (H0, H30, and H50, respectively) during a parallel squat. Ten healthy subjects performed 10 repetitions of squats in each of the 3 hip positions and the myoelectric activities of(More)
OBJECTIVE To examine the influence of a preventative training program (PTP) on sagittal plane kinematics during different landing tasks and vertical jump height (VJH) in males. DESIGN Six weeks prospective exercise intervention. PARTICIPANTS Fifteen male volleyball athletes (13 ± 0.7 years, 1.70 ± 0.12 m, 60 ± 12 kg). INTERVENTIONS PTP consisting of(More)
Effectiveness of Serious Games (SG) depends very much on their capacity to provide the right balance between gaming and educational experience. This requirement raises challenges regarding realization of their intelligence and personalization. We aim to overcome the problems of research fragmentation and identify some of the main issues by presenting a(More)
This study aims at investigating the effect of removing the negative values of Choi-Wiliams distribution (CWD) related to the electromyogram (EMG) for visualization and instantaneous median frequency (IMF) estimation. Beyond the EMG signals from triceps surae and biceps brachialis, the CWD was applied in a simulated sinusoidal signal as like in stationary(More)
OBJECTIVE : To compare gait spatiotemporal parameters of healthy and ACL reconstructed subjects in order to classify the status of gait normality. METHODS : Fourteen healthy subjects and eight patients submitted to ACL reconstruction walked along a walkway while the lower limbs movement was captured by an infrared camera system. The frames where the(More)
The aim of this study was to compare the ratio of activation of the vastus lateralis (VL) and biceps femoris (BF) muscles between healthy (CG) and anterior cruciate ligament reconstructed (ACL-R) subjects during gait. Nineteen subjects, ten from GC and nine from ACL-R, participated in the study. VL and BF activity was captured and the VL/BF ratio was(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the activation of the vastus lateralis (VL) and biceps femoris (BF) muscles during gait, as well VL/BF muscular co-contraction (MCC) between healthy (CG) and anterior cruciate ligament reconstructed (ACL-R) subjects. METHODS Nineteen subjects, ten controls and nine ACL-R patients had a VL and BF electromyogram (EMG) captured to(More)
This study evaluated the thermoregulation and spermatogenic changes by scrotal temperature gradient using infrared thermography in testicular compromised bulls. Bulls were insulated (n = 6) for 72 hr and control animals (n = 3) remained without insulation during all the experimental period. Seminal evaluation was performed prior, at insult removal and once(More)
This study compared the instantaneous median frequency (IMF) obtained by means of a Choi-Williams transform of an electromyogram of the lower-limb muscles during single-leg (SL) and double-leg (DL) landings performed by fifteen male athletes. The IMF values of the rectus femoris (RF), biceps femoris (BF) and hip adductors (HA) were compared between two(More)
