Load distribution within the contracting hamstring muscles: relevance to strain injuries in sport
Project Year: Nov 2017 - Mar 2020
Evaluation of form-quality-function aspects of skeletal muscles: toward remarkable upgrading of physical movement performance for ordinary individuals and elite athletes
Project Year: Apr 2016 - Mar 2020
Mechanism and adaptability of human movement performance approached with in vivo measurement of musculotendinous behavior
Project Year: Apr 2012 - Mar 2015
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the adaptability of muscle-tendon unit functions and reveal the mechanisms during human movements through the measurement of biological data. We disclosed dynamics of the muscle-tendon units and their mech...
Why do muscle strain injuries occur frequently at a specific site of bi-articular muscles?
Project Year: Apr 2012 - Mar 2014
The motor nerve of the bi-articular rectus femoris muscle is generally split from the femoral nerve trunk into two sub-branches just before it reaches the distal and proximal regions of the muscle. The purpose of the present study was to examine w...
