OBJECTIVE To elucidate whether hip and knee joint movement modulate soleus H-reflex, the authors measured the soleus H-reflex for a very fine angle during movement. METHODS Eight healthy subjects participated. The knee and hip joints were passively flexed and extended ranging from 0 degrees to 120 degrees simultaneously. RESULTS In the flexion phase, H-reflex decreased. It decreased more during fast movement. In the extension phase, H-reflex increased markedly. CONCLUSION By measuring for… CONTINUE READING
