STUDY DESIGN A biomechanical model of the lumbar spine was used to calculate the effects of abdominal muscle coactivation on spinal stability. OBJECTIVES To estimate the effects of abdominal muscle coactivation on lumbar spine stability, muscle fatigue rate, and lumbar spine compression forces. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA The activation of human trunk muscles has been found to involve coactivation of antagonistic muscles, which has not been adequately predicted by biomechanical models… CONTINUE READING
