High-frequency vibrations e.g., induced by legs impacting with the ground during terrestrial locomotion can provoke damage within tendons even leading to ruptures. So far, macroscopic Hill-type muscle models do not account for the observed high-frequency damping at low-amplitudes. Therefore, former studies proposed that protective damping might be explained(More)
Treadmills are often used in research to analyse kinematic and physiological variables. The success of transfering the results to overground running depends on the comparability of the values between the two situations. The aim of the present study was to compare the kinematics and muscle activities in overground and treadmill running. Ten male physical(More)
The technological progress within the last few years allows the construction of robots that could be part of our everyday live in near future. Besides human like appearance and communication they require natural patterns of behavior and motion to achieve wide acceptance. To analyze human motions we present different kinds of motion capturing systems and(More)
Human movement is characterized by smoothed trajectories and individual solutions in terms of joint angle configurations. Knowledge about basic strategies and the nature of human motion is essential to transfer human movement characteristics to a humanoid robot. The objective of this study is the inter-individual and intra-individual comparison of movement(More)
Exhaustive exercise can interfere with immunity, causing transient immunosuppression and infections/inflammation in athletes. We used microarray technology to analyze the gene expression profiles of whole blood in short time (1h) LPS-stimulated and un-stimulated cultures drawn before, 30min after, 3h after and 24h after a half-marathon run. Four male and 4(More)

This article describes a new measuring device to investigate balancing strategies of human stance: the totter-slab, i.e., a standing plate suspended with steel cables to hooks on a steel frame. First, we analysed the physical properties of the device by recording free oscillations under different conditions [varying amplitude, mass and centre of mass (COM)(More)
