Although more commonly done by children, hopping appears to be a rich source of neuromuscular and biomechanical information on adults. Given prior research on the independent effects of hopping frequency and added mass, this study assessed whether these would interact to affect vertical stiffness, contact duration, and lower extremity kinematics during unipedal hopping. Vertical force and two-dimensional kinematics were measured in 10 healthy males hopping at three frequencies: their preferred… CONTINUE READING
