A single bout of exercise with a flexible pole induces significant cardiac autonomic responses in healthy men
(Clinics, 2014-01-01) [Artigo]
OBJECTIVES: Flexible poles can provide rapid eccentric and concentric muscle contractions. Muscle vibration is associated with a "tonic vibration reflex" that is stimulated by a sequence of rapid muscle stretching, activation ...
Electromyographic reaction time in older female fallers and non-fallers after postural perturbation
(Revista Brasileira de Cineantropometria & Desempenho Humano, 2014-06-01) [Artigo]
O tempo de reação eletromiográfica (TRE) reflete a magnitude e a velocidade com que os músculos são ativados para realizar movimentos, evitar lesões ou posicionar uma articulação e pode ser avaliado após uma perturbação ...
Lower limb strength is associated with gait biomechanical abnormalities in older female fallers and non-fallers
(Isokinetics and Exercise Science, 2013-06-17) [Artigo]
BACKGROUND: Age-related loss in lower limb strength is related with impaired mobility. However, the association between decreased lower limb strength and gait biomechanical abnormalities is unclear. %In line with this, ...
Acute effects of flexible pole exercise on heart rate dynamics
(Revista Portuguesa De Cardiologia, 2015-01-01) [Artigo]
Introduction: Exercise with flexible poles provides fast eccentric and concentric muscle contractions. Although the literature reports significant muscle chain activity during this exercise, it is not clear if a single ...
