As part of a study to characterize the postural reactions that occur during voluntary gait modification, we examined the kinematic, electromyographic (EMG), and kinetic responses that occurred when cats stepped over an obstacle placed in their path. Analyses of the kinematics as each of the forelimbs stepped over the obstacle showed that changes in joint angles were most pronounced at the elbow of the first (lead) limb, and at the shoulder of the second (trailing) limb. In the hindlimbs, there… CONTINUE READING
