Article in Posture 20(3):280-90 · January 2005 Steven W. Saunders, David Rath, Paul W. Hodges Despite the importance of the deep intrinsic spinal muscles for trunk control, few studies have investigated their activity during human locomotion or how this may change with speed and mode of locomotion. Furthermore, it has not [...]
Changes in three dimensional lumbo-pelvic kinematics and trunk muscle activity with speed and mode of locomotion
Article in Clinical Biomechanics 20(8):784-93 · November 2005 Steven W. Saunders, Anthony Schache, David Rath, Paul W. Hodges Control of the trunk is critical for locomotor efficiency. However, investigations of trunk muscle activity and three-dimensional lumbo-pelvic kinematics during walking and running remain scarce. Gait parameters and three-dimensional lumbo-pelvic kinematics were [...]
