The relation among several parameters of the ramp-and-hold force contraction and target force level was quantified for the upper and lower lip in 40 normal adults and in 4 young adults who had sustained traumatic brain injury (TBI). Using visual feedback, subjects produced ramp-and-hold compression lip forces as rapidly and accurately as possible to end-point target levels ranging from 0.25 to 2.00 newtons. In normal adults, significant positive linear relations were found between the… CONTINUE READING
