  1. 1. Elite sprinters, ice hockey players, orienteers and marathon runners isokinetic leg muscle performance in relation to muscle structure and training

    Author : Christer Johansson; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Electromyography; endurance; enzyme histocytochemistry; fatigue; ice hockey; isokinetic; muscle contraction; OBLA; orienteering; running;

    Abstract : In male athletes from different sports, isokinetic knee extensor, and in orienteers also plantar flexor peak torque (PT), contractional work (CW) and integrated surface electromyograms (iEMG) were analysed.Single contraction PT, CW and iEMG in sprinters and marathon runners were signi­ficantly correlated to the cross-sectional area (CSA) of m.

  2. 2. Vibration-induced muscle injury in the hand - experimental and clinical studies

    University dissertation from Lars E Necking, Department of Hand Surgery, Malmö University Hospital, SE-205 02 Malmö, Sweden

    Author : Lars Necking; [2003]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; traumatologi; Surgery; muscle morphometry; intrinsic hand muscle; muscle strength; muscle injury; hand weakness; Vibration exposure; hand-arm vibration syndrome; orthopaedics; traumatology; Kirurgi; ortopedi;

    Abstract : Exposure to vibration is known to cause vasospastic white fingers and/or sensorineural symtoms such as numbness and tingling in fingers and/or musculoskeletal disorders such as reduction in muscle force, fatigue and reduced endurance. Classifications for the vasospastic and sensorineural symptoms are established. READ MORE

  3. 3. Heat shock proteins in exercised human skeletal muscle

    University dissertation from Örebro : Örebro University

    Author : Mattias Folkesson; Fawzi Kadi; Britta Wåhlin-Larsson; Robert Kruse; Barbara Wessner; [2018]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Endurance training; Resistance training; Muscle Fibre Type; Electrical Pulse Stimulation; Muscle Hypertrophy;

    Abstract : Exercise is considered as an important stressor accompanied by concerted molecular and cellular changes leading to adaptations at the level of skeletal muscle size and function. An important protein family produced by cells in response to stressful conditions is the heat shock proteins (HSPs). READ MORE

  4. 4. Acute Achilles tendon rupture - The impact of calf muscle performance on function and recovery

    University dissertation from Göteborg : Göteborgs universitet

    Author : Annelie Brorsson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2017]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Achilles tendon rupture; Rehabilitation; Heel-rise; Function; Recovery; Calf muscle; Ankle biomechanics; Endurance; Jump; Sex differences;

    Abstract : There is an ongoing debate about the optimal treatment for patients with an acute Achilles tendon rupture. The overall purpose of this thesis was to acquire a greater knowledge of the way patients recover at different time points after the injury when treated with the currently recommended treatment protocols.

  5. 5. Physical Exercise in Cystic Fibrosis -studies on muscle strength, oxygen uptake and lung function in young adult patients

    University dissertation from Göteborg : Göteborgs universitet

    Author : Margareta E Sahlberg; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2008]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Lung function; muscle strength; exercise capacity; endurance; resistance training;

    Abstract : Muscular strength, lung function and exercise capacity are internationally reported to be markedly impaired in adult patients with cystic fibrosis (CF). Since 20 years physical exercise is one important part in the treatment of patients with CF in Sweden. Handgrip strength is reported to relate to nutrition and activity of daily living. READ MORE
