OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to investigate the activation pattern of six lower limb muscles during standing up from two initial foot positions and to examine relationships between the onsets of muscle activity and the dynamics of the action. In contrast to earlier studies, an algorithm was used to measure onsets and duration of muscle activity. METHOD The activity of biceps femoris, rectus femoris, vastus lateralis, tibialis anterior, lateral gastrocnemius and medial soleus was… CONTINUE READING
