The aim of this study was to determine if and how specific characteristics of visual information influence the motor control strategy adopted during a visuomotor tracking task. To this end, twenty healthy subjects and two stroke patients were measured. Changes in wrist joint admittance (i.e., wrist rotations due to external forces) due to...

Quantification of neuromechanical parameters describing joint admittance is used to improve understanding about human motor control, which is relevant for diagnostics and treatment monitoring of patients suffering from movement disorders. Previous studies used a simple mass-spring-damper (MBK) mechanical model to describe the ankle admittance...

Abnormal neuromuscular control (NMC) has been suggested as a cause or effect of a-specific low back pain. This study aimed to gain more insight into the stabilization of the low back during postural control by developing a method to study the intrinsic and reflexive components of NMC. Inertial loading of the trunk by perturbation of subjects on...

The goal of this study was to assess if the superposition principle is valid in head-neck stabilization during combined torso perturbations and continuous galvanic vestibular stimulation. Nine seated subjects were perturbed in lateral direction on a motion platform while GVS was simultaneously applied. Both the mechanical and galvanic input...

Existing re-calibration methods for instrumented treadmills have mainly been performed when the instrumented treadmill has been in static operation i.e. the belts are not running. The effect re-calibrating during experimental operation, i.e. while the belts are running, on the ground reaction force (GRF) and the center of pressure (CoP) accuracy...
