The effects of a simulated occupational kneeling exposure on squat mechanics and knee joint load during gait
(Taylor and Francis, 2017-12-01)
Occupational kneeling is associated with an increased risk for tibiofemoral knee osteoarthritis. Forces on the knee in the kneeling posture, as well as the greater incidence of meniscus tears among workers, likely contribute ...
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. ...
