It mentions that it affects the mobility of the person as knee joint functions as a solid pillar for the legs during...

  • Fisiología de la articulación temporomandibular. Reyes Velázquez, Joel Omar; Pérez Romero, Gilberto Alfonso // Medicina Oral (16656024);jul-sep2011, Vol. 13 Issue 3, p73 

    The movements of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) are complex and sometimes difficult to understand. This joint physiology is present from uterine life and ends with the death of the individual. Thanks to these movements is possible to open and close the mouth and make lateral movements, either...

  • The effect of movement direction on joint torque covariation. Shemmell, Jonathan; Hasan, Ziaul; Gottlieb, Gerald; Corcos, Daniel // Experimental Brain Research;Dec2006, Vol. 176 Issue 1, p150 

    It has been proposed that unconstrained upper limb movements are coordinated via a kinetic constraint that produces dynamic muscle torques at each moving joint that are a linear function of a single torque command. This constraint has been termed linear synergy (Gottlieb et al. J Neurophysiol...

  • Whole Arms, Healthy Hands. Harscher, Jerald // Soundboard;2014, Vol. 40 Issue 2, p16 

    The article presents information on healthy hands. It is stated that misconceptions of the arm and its joints hampers a guitarists life. It is suggested that a guitarist with accurate information about their body movement can help in recovering from disease. It will also help in making them...

    The article presents a study on the impact of rigid shoe shape on the energetic cost of walking. The researchers attacked rigid arc shapes to the bottoms of modified walking shoes, after which they compared the leg mechanics and metabolic energy during walking using arcs of different radii. They...

  • Characteristic points and cycles in planar kinematics with application to the human gait. DATHE, HENNING; GEZZI, RICCARDO; KUBEIN-MEESENBURG, DIETMAR; NÄGERL, HANS // Acta of Bioengineering & Biomechanics;2015, Vol. 17 Issue 1, p75 

    Purpose: We present a novel method to process kinematical data typically coming from measurements of joints. This method will be illustrated through two examples. Methods: We adopt theoretical kinematics together with the principle of least action. We use motion and inverse motion for describing...
