Abstract Rendos, NK, Heredia Vargas, HM, Alipio, TC, Regis, RC, Romero, MA, and Signorile, JF. Differences in muscle activity during cable resistance training are influenced by variations in handle types. J Strength Cond Res 30(7): 2001–2009, 2016—There has been a recent resurgence in the use of cable machines for resistance training allowing movements that more effectively simulate daily activities and sports-specific movements. By necessity, these devices require a machine/human interface… Expand
Electromyographic evaluation of different handle shapes of masons’ trowels
The effects of five different handle shapes of masons’ trowels on muscle activity of the arm and forearm muscles were evaluated in a simulated masonry task and showed a significant effect of handle shape. Expand
Effects of 8 Weeks of Isoinertial vs. Cable-Resistance Training on Motor Skills Performance and Interlimb Asymmetries.
Although both resistance training programs improve players' to physical performance and reduce interlimb asymmetries, greater improvements were recorded with the isoinertial resistance training than with the cable-resistance methodology. Expand
Electrode Size and Placement for Surface EMG Bipolar Detection from the Brachioradialis Muscle: A Scoping Review
A scoping review of the main databases to explore available guidelines of electrode placement on BRD and to map the electrode configurations used and authors’ awareness on the issues of crosstalk found three guidelines, whose recommendations have been compared and summarized to promote reliability in further studies.

Von der Biomechanik zur klinischen Anwendung
Der Artikel stellt die physiologischen Grundlagen der Elektromyografie, die Einflusse of Verletzungen auf die Muskelfaserzusammensetzung, die grundlegende Signalverarbeitung and Dateninterpretation, ein Ebenenmodell fur die klinische Anwendung sowie Einsatzfelder in der Physiotherapie vor. Expand


Ergonomic assessment of handle design by means of electromyography and subjective rating.
The results of a comparative investigation into the physiological cost demanded by the use of the different handles of electric hedge-clippers show that further ergonomic tool and handle design is necessary. Expand
Torque Levels, Subjective Discomfort, and Muscle Activity Associated with Four Commercially Available Screwdrivers under Static and Dynamic Work Conditions
This study evaluated screwdrivers with different handle designs and blade lengths and found that the in-line screwdriver with the combined characteristics of large handle diameter, smooth rubber covering handle surface, triangular shape, and adequate handle length had the greatest supination torque and a smaller discomfort rating than the screws with the pistol-grip handle.

An analysis of handle designs for reducing manual effort: The influence of grip diameter
Biomechanical principles indicate that the risk of upper extremity cumulative trauma disorders (CTDs) can be mitigated by designing tools to reduce manual effort. Specifically, research suggests thatExpand
The Physiology of Rock Climbing
It appears that success in climbing is not related to individual physiological variables but is the result of a complex interaction of physiological and psychological factors. Expand
The results of this investigation indicate that a fixed and stable Tri- bar may help to increase hang time, but a Tri-Bar free to rotate within the grasp may decrease grasping time in comparison to a standard round handle. Expand
Experiments on wrist deviation in manual materials handling.
If container handles are to be designed to fit the operator, an evaluation of the effect of wrist deviation on MMH tasks is required, and radial deviation proved worse than ulnar deviation. Expand
Comparison of three hand dynamometers in relation to the accuracy and precision of the measurements.
There is an influence of the dynamometer's handle shapes on the measurements of grip strength, and the results demonstrated the need for previous calibration of this type of instrument. Expand
Effect of grip span on maximal grip force and fatigue of flexor digitorum superficialis.
Investigating the effect of grip span on isometric grip force and fatigue of the flexor digitorum superficialis (FDS) muscle during sustained voluntary contractions at 60-65% of the maximal voluntary contraction found middle grip sizes allowed for greater absolute forces than the small or large size.

Changes in the myosin heavy chain isoform profile of the triceps brachii muscle following 12 weeks of resistance training
Data indicated that resistance training rapidly, and in an ongoing manner, changed the contractile protein profile of trained skeletal muscle, however, changes in MHC isoform composition in the first 12 weeks of training were not implicated in the development of 1RM triceps pushdown strength.

Performance in gripping and turning -a study in hand/handle effectiveness.
The biomechanics of the hand/handle linkage were studied to generate data for the optimal design of screwdrivers and other devices which are gripped and used forcefully against resistance, and it was concluded that for forceful activity the precise shape of the handle is unimportant. Expand
