. Participants wore a pair of comfortable shoes during the training and treatment sessions. For the goddess exercise, patients stood bilaterally with hands on the pelvis and feet in about 45° external rotation and shoulder-width apart. Then, they squatted down to about 30° (or about 60°, or 90° of knee flexion

palsy ( Debuse, Gibb, & Chandler, 2009 ). Physical adaptations to EAAT are elicited by the three-dimensional, rhythmic movements of the walking horse, which generates movements at the rider’s pelvis that resembles those essential for ambulation ( Garner & Rigby, 2015 ). Improvements in skeletal muscle

and proper head position during the observation of the visual field. Fujishita et al. ( 2018 ) showed that higher single-leg running speed was associated with an increased forward tilt of the pelvis and a shorter crutch stance phase. Consequently, the biomechanics of locomotion during an amputee

activating muscles surrounding the pelvis, for example, hip flexor and extensor muscles, might also compensate during the trunk tests with trunk kyphosis or lordosis. Distinguishing the movement caused by using a compensation strategy can be difficult for the classifiers to examine because the compensation

Participants were encouraged to maintain an upright posture with their spine and pelvis

. In male team handball players, ball velocity in throwing is due to an optimal throwing technique determined by an optimal proximal-to-distal sequencing as well as a high pelvis, trunk, and shoulder internal rotation angular velocity. 24 – 26 Conversely, we found a high and significant correlation

Paralympic cross-country (XC) sit-skiing is a Paralympic discipline in which athletes are skiing seated because they have an impairment in function or structure of the lower extremities, pelvis, and/or trunk. XC sit-skiers ski using a sledge mounted on a pair of XC skis, named sit-ski, and a couple

In TEXT, the participants were asked to hold a horizontal prone position as long as possible, with the arms crossed over the chest. The pelvis and knees were fixed
