The influence of wheelchair mechanical parameters and human physical fitness on propulsion effort
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2016-11-15)
The majority of wheelchair studies that attempt to evaluate propulsion efforts across wheelchair configurations examines long and steady propulsion. However, the results of these studies cannot represent performance during ...
Changes in leg and joint coordination during locomotor adaptation in amputees and able-bodied controls
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2016-06-06)
Activities of daily life require humans to locomote in unfamiliar environments. We respond to these new environments through adaptation, a gradual change in movement parameters in response to a sensory error caused by ...
Substrate-level control of glucose metabolism in C2C12 myotubes
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2016-03-30)
Metabolic flexibility is critical for muscle to maintain proper function and overall health. Muscle adapts to metabolic stress with increasing ATP synthesis by enhancing the rate of glycolysis and mitochondrial respiration. ...
Mechanisms of coordination between one- and two-joint synergist muscles
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2016-04-15)
Major muscle groups (e.g. triceps surae, quadriceps, hamstrings, triceps brachii) contain synergist muscles that cross either one or two joints; they are called one- and two-joint muscles. The functional significance of ...
