- Modeling Effects of Muscle Fatigue on Unilateral Postural Control. Davis, Brian L.; Grabiner, Mark D. // Journal of Applied Biomechanics;May1996, Vol. 12 Issue 2, p173
Measurement of postural sway is a valuable research and clinical tool that can provide information related to various central and peripheral elements of the nervous system. The present study involved modeling single limb standing as an inverted pendulum tethered to a supporting surface by two...
- Biomechanics assessment of long term consequences of talocrural joint sprain in conservatively treated males. CZAMARA, ANDRZEJ; EMILIANOWICZ, MAREK; MARKOWSKA, IGA; TRUSZCZYŃSKA, ALEKSANDRA; TRZASKA, TADEUSZ; LEWANDOWSKI, JACEK; BARINOW-WOJEWÓDZKI, ALEKSANDER; MACIĄG-TYMECKA, IWONA // Acta of Bioengineering & Biomechanics;2013, Vol. 15 Issue 4, p73
The aim of the study was an assessment of isometric torque (IT) values under static conditions and relative torque (RT) for the plantar flexion muscles (PFM) and dorsal flexion muscles (DFM) and their mutual relations in males 5 years after talocrural joint sprain. IT measurements in PFM and DFM...

- The effect of an ankle brace on the 3-dimensional kinematics and tibio-talar contact condition for lateral ankle sprains. Omori, Go; Kawakami, Kensaku; Sakamoto, Makoto; Hara, Toshiaki; Koga, Yoshio // Knee Surgery, Sports Traumatology, Arthroscopy;Sep2004, Vol. 12 Issue 5, p457
Ten fresh-frozen cadaveric ankles were studied to investigate the effect of an ankle brace (Air-Stirrup) on the three-dimensional (3-D) motion and contact-pressure distribution of the talo-tibial joint with lateral ligamentous injury. Three-dimensional motion and contact-pressure distribution...
- Treatment of Acute Lateral Ankle Ligament Rupture in the Athlete: Conservative Versus Surgical Treatment. Lynch, S.A.; Renström, P.A.F.H. // Sports Medicine;Jan1999, Vol. 27 Issue 1, p61
Acute lateral ankle ligament sprains are common in young athletes (15 to 35 years of age). Diagnostic and treatment protocols vary. Therapies range from cast immobilisation or acute surgical repair to functional rehabilitation. The lateral ligament complex includes 3 capsular ligaments: the...
