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. ...
The Effects of Varying Surface Translation Acceleration and Velocity on Compensatory Forward Stepping Responses
(University of Waterloo, 2018-11-16)
Introduction: Examination of balance control has often been accomplished via evocation of stepping responses through external perturbations. These external perturbations can take the form of sudden underfoot surface ...
Exploring the Utility of Inter-Segmental Coordination to Assess Movement Competency During Lifting Tasks
(University of Waterloo, 2018-02-22)
Pre-employment screens are used within the hiring process to determine the hiring or placement of employees in the workplace. It is important that such screens adequately replicate or generalize to the work of interest. ...
Using pattern recognition to detect differences in movement strategy between high and low relative biomechanical exposure lifts and lifters: Application to backboard lifting
(University of Waterloo, 2018-12-13)
Introduction: Backboard lifting is a demanding aspect of paramedic work that results in higher low back moments and sagittal trunk angles compared to other paramedic tasks. Movement strategy in a backboard lift affects ...
