Background: Spasticity, i.e. stretch hyperreflexia, increases joint resistance similar to symptoms like hypertonia and contractures. Botulinum neurotoxin-A (BoNT-A) injections are a widely used intervention to reduce spasticity. BoNT-A effects on spasticity are poorly understood, because clinical measures, e.g. modified Ashworth scale (MAS),...

Background: After mild stroke persistent balance limitations may occur, creating a risk factor for fear of falling, falls, and reduced activity levels. Objective. To investigate whether individuals in the chronic phase after mild stroke show balance and gait limitations, elevated fall risk, reduced balance confidence, and physical activity...

Human hands are complex biomechanical systems that allow for dexterous tasks with many degrees of freedom. Coordination of the fingers is essential for many activities of daily living and involves integrating sensory signals. During this sensory integration, the central nervous system deals with the uncertainty of sensory signals. When...

Silent speech interfaces could enable people who lost the ability to use their voice or gestures to communicate with the external world, e.g., through decoding the person’s brain signals when imagining speech. Only a few and small databases exist that allow for the development and training of brain computer interfaces (BCIs) that can decode...

Recent studies have established the presence of nociceptive steady-state evoked potentials (SSEPs), generated in response to thermal or intra-epidermal electric stimuli. This study explores cortical sources and generation mechanisms of nociceptive SSEPs in response to intra-epidermal electric stimuli. Our method was to stimulate healthy...

Knowledge on joint impedance during walking in various conditions is relevant for clinical decision-making and the development of robotic gait trainers, leg prostheses, leg orthotics and wearable exoskeletons. Whereas ankle impedance during walking has been experimentally assessed, knee and hip joint impedance during walking have not been...

Tremor is thought to be an effect of oscillatory activity within the sensorimotor network. To date, the underlying pathological brain networks are not fully understood. Disentangling tremor activity from voluntary motor output and sensorimotor feedback systems is challenging. To better understand the intrinsic sensorimotor fingerprint...

Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) is a promising tool to improve and speed up motor rehabilitation after stroke, but inconsistent clinical effects refrain tDCS from clinical implementation. Therefore, this study aimed to assess the need for individualized tDCS configurations in stroke, considering interindividual variability in...

The simultaneous modulation of joint torque and stiffness enables humans to perform large repertoires of movements, while versatilely adapting to external mechanical demands. Multi-muscle force control is key for joint torque and stiffness modulation. However, the inability to directly measure muscle force in the intact moving human prevents...

Joint impedance is a common way of representing human joint dynamics. Since ankle joint impedance varies within the gait cycle, time-varying system identification techniques can be used to estimate it. Commonly, time-varying system identification techniques assume repeatably of joint impedance over cyclic motions, without taking into...

Joint impedance plays an important role in postural control and movement. However, current experimental knowledge on lower limb impedance during gait is limited to the ankle joint. We designed the LOwer limb PERturbator (LOPER) aimed to assess knee and hip joint impedance during gait. The LOPER applies force perturbations with a 39 Hz...

Quantifying human joint stiffness in vivo during movement remains challenging. Well established stiffness estimation methods include system identification and the notion of quasi-stiffness, with experimental and conceptual limitations, respectively. Joint stiffness computation via biomechanical models is an emerging solution to overcome such...

Careful control of joint impedance, or dynamic joint stiffness, is crucial for successful performance of movement. Time-varying system identification (TV-SysID) enables quantification of joint impedance during movement. Several TV-SysID methods exist, but have never been systematically compared. Here, we simulate time-varying joint behavior...

Motion capture systems are extensively used to track human movement to study healthy and pathological movements, allowing for objective diagnosis and effective therapy of conditions that affect our motor system. Current motion capture systems typically require marker placements which is cumbersome and can lead to contrived movements.Here, we...

Skeletal muscles generate force, enabling movement through a series of fast electro-mechanical activations coordinated by the central nervous system. Understanding the underlying mechanism of such fast muscle dynamics is essential in neuromuscular diagnostics, rehabilitation medicine and sports biomechanics. The unique combination of...

A sustained sensory stimulus with a periodic variation of intensity creates an electrophysiological brain response at associated frequencies, referred to as the steady-state evoked potential (SSEP). The SSEPs elicited by the periodic stimulation of nociceptors in the skin may represent activity of a brain network that is primarily involved in...

Motorized assessment of the stretch reflex is instrumental to gain understanding of the stretch reflex, its physiological origin and to differentiate effects of neurological disorders, like spasticity. Both short-latency (M1) and medium-latency (M2) stretch reflexes have been reported to depend on the velocity and acceleration of an applied...

In vivo joint stiffness estimation during time-varying conditions remains an open challenge. Multiple communities, e.g. system identification and biomechanics, have tackled the problem from different perspectives and using different methods, each of which entailing advantages and limitations, often complementary.

Accurate and swift tuning of joint impedance is crucial to perform movement and interaction with our environment. Time-varying system identification enables quantification of joint impedance during movement. Many methods have been developed over the years, each with their own mathematical approach and underlying assumptions. Yet, for the...

Background: Proprioception is important for regaining motor function in the paretic upper extremity after stroke. However, clinical assessments of proprioception are subjective and require verbal responses from the patient to applied proprioceptive stimuli. Cortical responses evoked by robotic wrist perturbations and measured by...
