clusters were used to track the thigh, shank, and foot segments during the movement trials. The pelvis was tracked by the markers placed on the posterior superior iliac spines and on the iliac crests. With the markers in place, a standing calibration trial was captured. The 3-dimensional positions of the

association was inverse, because the lower the aP ML , the better the running performance. As regards throwing, two parameters were directly and inversely associated with perceived competence, respectively: range of motion of yaw calculated during the cocking phase (ROM Yaw ) and the maximum pelvis vertical

Challenge ( ). In this study, we defined an MSK model of the pelvis and right lower limb that incorporates intersegmental contact variables. The objectives for this work were to quantify prediction error of tibial compression against a gold standard and to use this model

Carbon fiber tracking clusters were positioned onto the shank and thigh segments. The foot was tracked using the first metatarsal, fifth metatarsal, and

, symmetrically rhythmic, and transferred from the back to the rider’s pelvis. The movement practice of a rider on horseback is associated with greater improvements in muscle strength 8 and activation, 9 and also perceived mental and emotional status. 10 However, the effects of horseback riding exercise are

-selected speed. Four markers, located at the anterior and posterior superior iliac spines, accounted for pelvis kinematics. For both lower limbs, 3 markers, placed at femur greater trochanter, femur lateral epicondyle, and fibula lateral malleolus, described the flexion–extension angle of the knee. For the

peak torque was used for data analysis. Figure 1 —Participants performed testing on an isokinetic dynamometer with hips flexed to 85° and knees flexed to 90.° Straps were used to secure the chest and pelvis, and a padded ankle strap was placed 5 cm proximal to the distal aspect of the lateral malleolus

task trials, particularly the position of the trunk and pelvis. During a DVJ, the body’s COM is relatively confined in the frontal plane considering the large base of support during a double-leg landing task. This is in contrast to a small, single-limb base of support during an SLL task, which would
