  1. 1. Experimental studies of spinal mechanisms associated with muscle fatigue

    Author : Ivana Kalezic; Vito Enrico Pettorossi; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : muscle fatigue; monosynaptic reflex; presynaptic inhibition; recurrent inhibition; fusimotor system; Fos-immunoreactivity; referral pain; kirurgi; Surgery; Muscle fatigue; Monosynaptic reflex; Presynaptic Inhibition; Recurrent Inhibition; Fusimotor System; Referral Pain;

    Abstract : Muscle fatigue is ubiquitous in every day life.Muscle fatigue might be considered as an altered state of motor behaviour, which impairs motor performance. By contrast, muscle fatigue could also be considered a positive phenomenon, which protects muscle tissue from damage that might be incurred to it by overuse. READ MORE

  2. 2. Trapezius muscle fatigue and electromyographic frequency analysis

    Author : Tommy Öberg; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : EMG; Spectrum; Frequency; Fatigue; Trapezius; Myalgia; MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : This study, comprising 6 separate articles, is concerned with different validity and reliability aspects of the electromyogram mean power frequency (MPF) as an estimator of localized musele fatigue in the trapezius muscle. A series of new, and partly controversial and problematic findings are reported. READ MORE

  3. 3. Brain processing of experimental muscle pain and its interrelation with proprioception and muscle fatigue : positron emission tomography study

    Author : Alexander Korotkov; Docent Tomas Graven-Nielsen; A Korotkov; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : Experimental muscle pain; Hypertonic saline; Kinesthesia; Proprioception; Movement; Vibration; Muscle fatigue; Brain; Imaging; Positron emission tomography; Regional cerebral blood flow; Movernent; Positron emission tornography; Regional cerebral blood - flow;

    Abstract : Chronic muscle pain is a significant medical and social problem and better understanding of the pathophysiological mechanisms involved is an important requirement for further development of diagnostics, treatment and rehabilitation methods. Experimental imaging studies have investigated functional neuroanatomy of different pain components. READ MORE

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

    Author : Christer Johansson; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; 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.

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

    Author : Lars Necking; Malmö Handkirurgi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; 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
