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)
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)
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)
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)
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 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)
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)
We present a clinical commentary of existing evidence regarding popliteus musculotendinous complex anatomy, biomechanics, muscle activation, and kinesthesia as they relate to functional knee joint rehabilitation. The popliteus appears to act as a dynamic guidance system for monitoring and controlling subtle transverse- and frontal-plane knee joint(More)
This paper will layout the University of Cincinnati's efforts in creating the core curriculum for an information technology degree program to be started in the autumn quarter of 2004. By core, we are referring to coursework required by all information technology majors no matter their chosen area of specialization: networking, software development or web(More)
