This study attempted to determine the effect of eccentric quadriceps femoris, hamstring, and placebo fatigue on stance limb dynamics during the plant-and-cut phase of a crossover cut. Twenty female college students (task trained) were tested. Hamstring fatigue resulted in decreased peak impact knee flexion moments (p < or = .01), increased internal tibial(More)
This prospective study evaluated differences in vastus medialis (VM) and gluteus medius (GM) EMG amplitude:composite hip abductor (gluteus maximus, gluteus medius, tensor fascia lata) EMG amplitude ratios among subjects with low or high relative femoral anteversion. Data were collected during the performance of a non-weight bearing, non-sagittal plane(More)
Athletic women are at greater risk of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury than men. Twenty, healthy, athletic women were evaluated for the effect of preferred stance limb isokinetic quadriceps femoris and hamstring fatigue from eccentric work compared with controls on the activation onset of vastus medialis, rectus femoris, vastus lateralis, the medial(More)
Fatigue may be related to lower extremity injury. The effect of lower extremity fatigue on ground reaction force production, lower extremity kinematics, and muscle activation during the landing phase of a run and rapid stop was investigated. Subjects were 19 female, Division 1 collegiate basketball and volleyball players (mean age = 20.8 +/- 1.8 years, mean(More)
PURPOSE Backward walking to running progressions are becoming a popular, nontraditional component of functional knee rehabilitation programs. The purpose of this electromyographic (EMG) and motion analysis study was to compare the activation duration of the vastus medialis, vastus lateralis, rectus femoris, medial hamstrings, lateral hamstring, tibialis(More)
Virtual machine technology has presented an opportunity for the networking/system administration lab to serve multiple classes. The storage and delivery of virtual machine images has however presented a new problem for faculty and technical support staff. The authors have performed initial testing involving centralized verses distributed virtual machine(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the effects of eccentric work-induced hamstring fatigue on sagittal and transverse plane (axial) knee and ankle biodynamics and kinetics during a running crossover cut directional change (functional pivot shift). DESIGN AND SETTING A pretest-posttest, single-group intervention experimental design was employed. All data were collected(More)
PURPOSE Center of plantar pressure (COPP) location moves toward the forefoot as ankle plantar flexor muscles attempt to maintain postural control during single leg stance. This study evaluated relationships between frontal plane tibiofemoral joint angulation during relaxed bilateral stance and mean COPP locations during vision-denied single leg stance at 20(More)
Improved lower extremity neuromuscular control during sports may decrease injury risk. This prospective study evaluated progressive resistance, whole body, long-axis rotational training on the Ground Force 360 device. Our hypothesis was that device training would improve lower extremity neuromuscular control based on previous reports of kinematic, ground(More)
Long thoracic nerve palsy can result from sudden or repetitive external biomechanical forces. This investigation describes a possible dynamic cause from internal forces. Six fresh cadaveric shoulders (3 female, 3 male, 4 left, 2 right) with full range of motion were systematically dissected to evaluate the anatomic course of the long thoracic nerve. In all(More)
