Unexpected ventral and dorsal perturbations and expected, self-induced ventral perturbations were delivered to the trunk by suddenly loading a vest strapped to the torso. Six male subjects were measured for intra-abdominal pressure (IAP) and intra-muscular electromyography of the transversus abdominis (TrA), obliquus internus abdominis (OI), obliquus(More)
 Galvanic vestibular stimulation serves to modulate the continuous firing level of the peripheral vestibular afferents. It has been shown that the application of sinusoidally varying, bipolar galvanic currents to the vestibular system can lead to sinusoidally varying postural sway. Our objective was to test the hypothesis that stochastic galvanic vestibular(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the effects of a new, individually adjusted, progressive and specific balance group training programme on fear of falling, step execution, and gait in healthy elderly people with fear of falling and tend to fall. DESIGN Randomized controlled trial. SETTING The study was conducted in Stockholm County, Sweden. SUBJECTS Fifty-nine(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of the study was to explore whether a relationship existed between subject's experience and objective measurements of back-muscle fatigue in healthy subjects. This may be used as reference material later. DESIGN Muscle fatigue in the lower back was measured in healthy subjects using a staircase protocol. BACKGROUND Muscle fatigue(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the long-term effects of a progressive and specific balance group-based program in healthy elderly individuals with increased risk of falling. DESIGN Follow-up of a randomized controlled trial at nine and 15 months on a population that has previously been described at three months. SETTING The study was conducted in Stockholm,(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate long-term effects of balance-training on concerns about falling, gait, balance performance, and physical function in older adults with osteoporosis and increased risk of falling. DESIGN Randomized controlled trial, including three groups (training, training+physical activity, and control group), with follow-ups at three, nine, and 15(More)
The study evaluated the effect of 4 weeks of combined resistance-balance training and resistance training alone in a 90° tilted environment on muscle power. Two groups of healthy young subjects performed leg extensions while in a supine position, either on a firm surface along a linear track or on an unstable surface requiring mediolateral balancing(More)
Galvanic vestibular stimulation serves to modulate the continuous ring level of the peripheral vestibu-lar aaerents. It has been shown that the application of sinusoidally-varying bipolar galvanic currents to the vestibular system can lead to sinusoidally-varying postural sway. Our objective was to test the hypothesis that stochastic galvanic vestibular(More)
