  1. 1. EMG and strength in trunk and hip muscles

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet

    Author : Eva A Andersson; GIH. Gymnastik- och idrottshögskolan; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [1997]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICINE Physiology and pharmacology Physiology Neurophysiology; MEDICIN Fysiologi och farmakologi Fysiologi Neurofysiologi; abdominal muscles; biomechanics; electromyography; erector spinae; iliacus; iliopsoas; hip flexor muscles; locomotion; motor control; normalization; posture; psoas; quadratus lumborum; rehabilitation; running; sit-ups; strength; training exercises; u;

    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.

  2. 2. Outcomes of arthroscopic hip surgery in patients with Femoro-acetabular Impingement

    University dissertation from Göteborg : University of Gothenburg

    Author : Mikael Sansone; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2016]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; hip joint; hip arthroscopy; register; PROM; femoro-acetabular impingement; athlete; cam; outcome;

    Abstract : Hip and groin problems are common, especially among athletes. The treatment of hip and groin problems has undergone rapid change during the latest 15 years, mainly due to our understanding of femoro-acetabular impingement (FAI). READ MORE

  3. 3. Structure and function of the cytoskeleton in cardiac and skeletal muscle

    University dissertation from Lunds universitet

    Author : Johanna Balogh; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2004]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; ATP-receptor; Cardiovascular system; Kardiovaskulära systemet; cardiomyopathy; transgenic mice; skeletal muscle; heart; muscle contraction; cytoskeleton; desmin;

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish I denna avhandling undersöks vilka funktioner cytoskelettproteinet desmin har strukturellt och funktionellt i hjärta och skelettmuskel. Genom att studera funktionen i hjärt- och skelettmuskler i en transgen musmodell, Des-/- som helt saknar proteinet desmin (delarbete I-III), kan vi uppskatta hur viktigt desmin är för muskelkontraktionen.

  4. 4. Asymmetric lateral loading of the human trunk

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Neuroscience

    Author : Qiang-Min Huang; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2001]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Eccentric; concentric; isokinetic; electromyography; co-activation; trunk; spinal biomechanics; contraction patterns; lateral bending; lifting and lowering; balance; kinematics; postural control; IAP; support translation.;

    Abstract : The overall aim of this thesis was to characterize the biomechanics and neuromuscular control of the human trunk in response to asymmetric lateral loading. The pulling force and strength capacities as well as muscle activation patterns, trunk kinematics and postural balance in relation to lateral trunk flexion and loading were given special consideration.

  5. 5. Rectal cancer : aspects on radiotherapy, androgens and body composition

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Molecular Medicine and Surgery

    Author : Christian Buchli; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Rectal cancer is diagnosed among 1200 men in Sweden every year. Current treatment for local and regional disease implies surgical resection of the rectum often in combination with preoperative radiotherapy (RT). READ MORE
