The aim of this research is to assess the muscle balance of thigh muscle in MS using a noninvasive method, to have information about the muscle status prior to the rehabilitation and to prevent muscle damage. Chronic demyelinisation in multiple sclerosis (MS) involves changes...
Influence of artificial turf temperature on physical performance and muscle contractile properties in football players after a repeated-sprint ability test
This study aimed to analyse the effect of playing surface temperature on muscular and thermal response to a repeated-sprint ability (RSA) test in football players. Thirty-two male football players (23 ± 5 years; 1.77 ± 0.06 m; 71.2 ± 6.7 kg) from two squads of a third-division football club participated...
Effects of 3D Moving Platform Exercise on Physiological Parameters and Pain in Patients with Chronic Low Back Pain
Background and objectives: Patient-handling activities predispose women to chronic low back pain (CLBP), but sufficient evidence is not available on whether a 3D moving platform, made for core stability exercise, affects pain, trunk flexibility, and static/dynamic muscle contractions in CLBP patients. Materials and Methods:...
Long lasting exercise involvement protects against VO2 max and VO2 kinetics decline in moderately active women
They studied the effects of age on different physiological parameters, including those derived from the i) maximal cardiopulmonary exercise testing (CPET), ii) moderate-intensity step-transitions and iii) tensiomyography (TMG)-derived variables in moderately active women. Twenty-eight women (age range from 19 to 53 y), completed three...
Intermittent Pneumatic Compression and Cold Water Immersion Effects on Physiological and Perceptual Recovery During Multi-Sports International Championship
Congested-fixture championships are common during the selection of the athletes and teams participating in the Olympic Games. Throughout these tournaments, it is fundamental to perform optimally, rest well, and recover between competitions. This study aimed to a) explore the effectiveness of the use of...
Mechanical and Contractile Properties of Knee Joint Muscles Measured by the Method of Tensiomyography in Differently Trained Men and Women
The aim of this study was to investigate the differences in mechanical and contractile properties of knee joint flexor and extensor muscles between differently trained men and women, using tensiomyography (TMG). The sample consisted of 159 subjects (84 men and 75 women), who were...
