(University of Waterloo, 2017-09-27)
Preventing falls and fall-related injuries are public health challenges of the upmost importance for Canadians, particularly for older adults. Due to the severe consequences that can accompany a fall (e.g., traumatic brain ...
Regional activation of anterior and posterior supraspinatus differs by plane of elevation, hand load and elevation angle
The supraspinatus is one of the muscles of the rotator cuff, and growing research on fibre type composition and mechanical advantages in specific postures suggest this muscle may have distinct anterior and posterior regions. ...
Biomechanical Predictors of Functionally Induced Low Back Pain, Acute Response to Prolonged Standing Exposure, and Impact of a Stabilization-Based Clinical Exercise Intervention
(University of Waterloo, 2009-07-24)
Purpose: Biomechanical differences between people with low back pain (LBP) and healthy controls have been shown previously. LBP has been associated with standing postures in occupational settings. A transient pain-generating ...
