    Abstract : The overall aim of this thesis was to study the myouelectric activity of all major muscles involved in the movements and stabilization of the trunk, pelvis and hips during training exercises, postures, motor tasks, maximal strength performance and locomotion. By use of ultra-sound, EMG electrodes could be guided safely and accurately into muscles situated even close to the spinal column, such as psoas, quadratus lumborum and deep parts of erector spinae.

    Abstract : Osteoarthritis (OA) of the hip is a common disease among elderly causing pain, joint stiffness and reduced mobility. Outcome studies have shown total hip arthroplasy (THA) to be a successful surgical procedure. Studies of muscle strength and function after THA are more scarce and results vary. READ MORE
