Explanation of the bilateral deficit in human vertical squat jumping.
In the literature, it has been reported that the mechanical output per leg is less in two-leg jumps than in one-leg jumps. This so-called bilateral deficit has been attributed to a reduced neuralExpand

Is the effect of a countermovement on jump height due to active state development?
PURPOSE To investigate whether the difference in jump height between countermovement jumps (CMJ) and squat jumps (SJ) could be explained by a difference in active state during propulsion. METHODSExpand

Humans adjust control to initial squat depth in vertical squat jumping.
The purpose of this study was to gain insight into the control strategy that humans use in jumping. Eight male gymnasts performed vertical squat jumps from five initial postures that differed inExpand

Which factors determine the optimal pedaling rate in sprint cycling?
INTRODUCTION Mechanical power output in sprint cycling depends on pedaling rate, with an optimum at around 130 revolutions per minute (rpm). In this study, the question is addressed if this optimalExpand

Consequences of ankle joint fixation on FES cycling power output: a simulation study.
INTRODUCTION During fixed-ankle FES cycling in paraplegics, in which the leg position is completely determined by the crank angle, mechanical power output is low. This low power output limits theExpand

The merits of a parallel genetic algorithm in solving hard optimization problems.
A parallel genetic algorithm for optimization is outlined, and its performance on both mathematical and biomechanical optimization problems is compared to a sequential quadratic programmingExpand

Are fast interceptive actions continuously guided by vision? Revisiting Bootsma and van Wieringen (1990).
In an influential study, R. J. Bootsma and P. C. W. van Wieringen (1990) argued that 2 of their 5 participants used visual information continuously during the attacking forehand drive in tableExpand

Factors underlying the perturbation resistance of the trunk in the first part of a lifting movement
In the first part of lifting movements, the trunk movement is surprisingly resistant to perturbations. This study examined which factors contribute to this perturbation resistance of the trunk duringExpand
