-end state, such as requisite with a change in height (e.g., ramp, stairs) or physical characteristic in the environment (e.g., type of surface; McFadyen & Carnahan, 1997 ). Obstacle accommodation requires anticipatory locomotor adjustments for the initial change from unobstructed level walking to avoid or

lessons were taught in a gymnasium with the primary content related to manipulative (n = 26; eg, kicking a ball, throwing, juggling) or locomotor activities (n = 9; eg, skipping to music, moving in personal or general space). Estimates of MVPA Based on per-SOFIT Protocol and Permutations of SOFIT

-offs have been observed in locomotor ( Acasio, Wu, Fey, & Gordon, 2017 ) and upright postural tasks ( Huang & Ahmed, 2011 ). Furthermore, the phenomenon of anticipatory synergy adjustment (ASA), describing the influence of upcoming voluntary movements on the stability of the current motor pattern, has been

5-year-old children is currently reported ( OECD, 2018 ). A recent study also demonstrated higher scores in both locomotor and object control skills in 4- to 5-year-old Belgian children receiving regular physical education compared to U.S. peers only receiving unstructured physical activity

We agree with others who believe that all children have a fundamental right to self-directed mobility ( Feldner, Logan, & Galloway, 2016 ), including children who are not traditional candidates for early powered mobility devices such as

The absence of reduction in drop jump performance indices during IT DJs suggests, however, that the net fatigue effect of the involved locomotor muscles was not sufficient to compromise the participant’s drop jumping capabilities. Alternatively, the coordination of these locomotor muscles might

of poles to generate propulsion. To guarantee a fair competition, in Paralympic events, seated athletes are divided into five different classes (locomotor winter [LW] 10, 10.5, 11, 11.5, and 12) reflecting a lower impact of the athlete’s impairment on XC-skiing performance ( International Paralympic

clarifying the mechanical determinants of sprinting performance in terms of GRFs is of great importance for understanding human locomotor functions, and knowledge about variables that are essential for better sprinting performance will be beneficial for the development of training programs to improve
