  1. 1. Adaptation and learning in postural control

    University dissertation from Department of Otorhinolaryngology, Lund University

    Author : Fredrik Tjernström; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Postural control; Adaptation; Learning; Sensory reweighting;

    Abstract : The importance of the ability to use bipedal stance and gait in everyday life cannot be underestimated. Bipedal stance is learned during childhood and constantly adapted to changing circumstances throughout life. Failure to attain and maintain the control of upright posture can have catastrophic consequences. READ MORE

  2. 2. On the role of transversus abdominis in trunk motor control

    University dissertation from Örebro : Örebro universitet

    Author : Martin Eriksson Crommert; Peter Engfeldt; Alf Thorstensson; Maria Ekblom; Birgitta Öberg; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; transversus abdominis; trunk muscles; EMG; intramuscular; IAP; motor control; postural control; spine stability; postural demand; MEDICINE; MEDICIN; Medicin; Medicine;

    Abstract : All trunk muscles are important contributors to spine stability. However, the deepest abdominal muscle, transversus abdominis (TrA), with its characteristically horizontal fibre orientation seems to serve a unique function in trunk motor control. READ MORE

  3. 3. Analysis of Adaptation in Human Postural Control

    University dissertation from Per-Anders Fransson Department of Clinical Sciences,Lund Lund University, 221 85 Lund

    Author : Per-Anders Fransson; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Physical medicine; kinesitherapy; revalidation; rehabilitation; Rehabilitering medicinsk och social ; Adaptation; Postural control; Proprioception; Vestibular; Posturography; neuropsykologi; Neurologi; neurophysiology; neuropsychology; Neurology; hörsel- och talorganen; audiologi; Otorinolaryngologi; auditive system and speech; audiology; Otorhinolaryngology; Movement pattern; Sensorimotor integration; Muscle fatigue; Age; Cutaneous sensation; neurofysiologi;

    Abstract : The ability to obtain correct balance control information and adjust motor performance appropriately are essential elements in effective postural control. However, functional disorders may affect the reliability of receptor information and ability to carry out corrective motions needed to maintain balance. READ MORE

  4. 4. Movement Control after Stroke Studies on Sit-to-walk and on the Relations between Clinical and Laboratory Measures

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Gunilla Elmgren Frykberg; Jörgen Borg; Helga Hirschfeld; Charlotte Häger-Ross; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; stroke; sit-to-walk; movement analysis; force analysis; postural control; Berg Balance Scale; INTERDISCIPLINARY RESEARCH AREAS Caring sciences Physiotherapy; TVÄRVETENSKAPLIGA FORSKNINGSOMRÅDEN Vårdvetenskap Sjukgymnastik fysioterapi; Rehabilitation Medicine; Rehabiliteringsmedicin;

    Abstract : Aims: The principal aims of this research were 1) to extend existing knowledge of the everyday sit-to-walk (STW) transfer in subjects with stroke and in matched controls by exploring temporal, kinematic, and kinetic aspects, and 2) to investigate the relations between some clinical and laboratory measures of postural control and locomotion in stroke rehabilitation and research.Methods: Ten community-living subjects with stroke (mean age 59 years) and ten matched controls were enrolled in the STW studies (Studies I, II, and IV).

  5. 5. Nervous mechanisms of postural control

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Neuroscience

    Author : Anastasia Karayannidou; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Postural control; equilibrium; body confguration; motor cortex; reticulospinal system; standing; locomotion; spinal cord injury; cat; rabbit; lamprey;

    Abstract : Maintenance of body confguration and orientation in space (postural control) is a vital motor function. A general goal of the present study was to analyze nervous feedback mechanisms for the maintenance of posture during different motor behaviors and with different postural perturbations. READ MORE
