Soleus Hoffman-reflex (H-reflex) gain was compared at the same background level of electromyographic activity across lying, natural standing, and tandem stance postures, in 12 young and 16 elderly adults. When compared to a lying posture, young adults significantly depressed soleus H-reflex gain when in a natural standing (19% decrease) and a tandem stance position (30% decrease; p <.0125 for both positions). For elderly adults, there was no significant decrease in H-reflex gain while standing… CONTINUE READING
