The feasibility of measuring the activation of the trunk muscles in healthy older adults during trunk stability exercises

Abstract

BACKGROUND As the older adult population increases, the potential functional and clinical burden of trunk muscle dysfunction may be significant. An evaluation of risk factors including the impact of the trunk muscles in terms of their temporal firing patterns, amplitudes of activation, and contribution to spinal stability is required. Therefore, the… (More)
