Discriminatory Ability of Lower-Extremity Peak Torque and Rate of Torque Development in the Identification of Older Women With Slow Gait Speed
(Journal Of Applied Biomechanics, 2018-08-01) [Artigo]
The aim was to compare torque and rate of torque development of lower limb muscles between older women with functional and slow gait speeds to determine which muscle group is the best predictor of functional gait speed, ...
Neuromuscular performance in the hip joint of elderly fallers and non-fallers
(Aging Clinical And Experimental Research, 2016-06-01) [Artigo]
Backgrounds Low strength and neuromuscular activation of the lower limbs have been associated with falls making it an important predictor of functional status in the elderly. Aim To compare the rate of neuromuscular ...
Handgrip and functional mobility in elderly with different levels of physical activity
(Fisioterapia e Pesquisa, 2014-04-01) [Artigo]
The proportion of elderly people is growing worldwide and, with this, there is an increase of chronic-degenerative conditions such as impaired balance and falls. The physically active elderly tends to an improved response ...
Assessment and comparison of the effects of two techniques on hamstring flexibility
(Fisioterapia em Movimento, 2014-12-01) [Artigo]
Introduction There are several stretching techniques that help increase flexibility, however, there are still questions regarding which method leads to the most effective gains. Objectives To assess and compare the effects ...
Analysis of localized muscle fatigue in elderly women with and without a history of falls using electromyographic signal frequency parameters
(Revista Brasileira de Cineantropometria & Desempenho Humano, 2014-07-01) [Artigo]
One of the problems that most concerns the elderly population is the falling, which can be caused by muscle fatigue. The objective of this study was to compare median electromyographic frequency values for the vastus ...
Altered maternal metabolism during mild gestational hyperglycemia as a predictor of adverse perinatal outcomes: A comprehensive analysis
(Biochimica et Biophysica Acta - Molecular Basis of Disease, 2019-01-01) [Resenha]
Mild gestational hyperglycemia (MGH), as assessed using the normal oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) and detection of an altered glycemic profile, is associated with adverse perinatal outcome. This study described the ...
