Effect of age and fall status on lower-extremity muscle activation and joint torque and power in physically active women
(Isokinetics and Exercise Science, 2016-02-27) [Artigo]
BACKGROUND: Lower-extremity strength and neuromuscular parameters that are more affected with age and in individuals more prone to fall still needs to be identified in healthy physically active adults. OBJECTIVE: To ...
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 ...
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 ...
