direction before their SEBT performance was measured. The mean value of the 3 test trials was used for data analysis. 26 Lateral Step-Down Test The lateral step-down test is a clinical test used to quantify movement quality during a functional task. 27 A 20-cm-high step was used for the test, and the

The direction the subject’s head was rotated first was also randomized using a coin, with heads indicating right and tails indicating left. Subjects were placed in a seated position, as described by Amiri et al, 8 with their hair suitably

accuracy ( Kolovelonis & Goudas, 2018 ). Data Handling and Statistical Analyses Two calibration indexes (i.e., accuracy and bias) were used. Calibration bias, an index of the direction of the calibration, was computed as the difference between predicted and actual performance in each test. Positive bias

As an alternative to the conventional manipulations used in previous studies, with the aid of computer simulation or willful actions being performed, for example, the design of three different garments were altered to disguise advance cues or deceive

 al., 2015 ). Thus, it is possible to balance the changes in force and direction during movements with the trunk muscles. Therefore, it could be suggested that trunk muscles are required for both the quality and safety of movement. It was reported that there is an increase in trunk muscle activity in

strength of association was stronger among forwards ( r  = .63) compared with backs ( r  = .38). The standard error of the estimate for the prediction of change in DXA FFM ranged between 1.3% and 1.6% (Table  2 ). The LMI was able to predict the direction of change (increase or decrease) 74% of the time in

further in the anterior direction of the SEBT, no difference in posterior reaches was found when compared to the YBT, suggesting posterior reaches are comparable with existing literature. To the authors’ knowledge there has yet to be a study which assesses the relationship between concentric hip abductor
