The effects of neuromuscular fatigue on task performance during repetitive goal-directed movements

Abstract

Proper movement timing is essential to the successful execution of many motor tasks and may be adversely affected by muscle fatigue. This study quantified how muscle fatigue affected task performance during a repetitive upper extremity task. A total of 14 healthy young adults pushed a low load back and forth along a low-friction horizontal track in time… (More)
