author keywords: EMG; lumbar; injury; modeling; simulation
MeSH headings : Acceleration; Adult; Computer Simulation; Electromyography; Female; Humans; Lumbosacral Region; Male; Models, Biological; Muscle, Skeletal / physiology; Physical Exertion; Torque; Weight Lifting / physiology
TL;DR: Electromyographic data collected as they performed controlled trunk extension exertions were used to develop marginal distributions of trunk muscle activity as well as a 10x10 correlation matrix that described how the muscles cooperated to produce these extension torques, which were combined to generate multivariate distributions describing the coactivation of the trunk musculature.

The Effect of Personality Type on Muscle Coactivation during Elbow Flexion

Human Factors: The Journal of the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society, 41(1), 51–60.

By: N. Glasscock n, K. Turville n, S. Joines n & G. Mirka n

MeSH headings : Adult; Analysis of Variance; Biomechanical Phenomena; Elbow Joint / physiology; Ergonomics; Female; Humans; Male; Middle Aged; Muscle Contraction / physiology; Psychomotor Performance; Type A Personality
TL;DR: Although the study was somewhat limited in its size and scope, the results indicate that certain psychosocial factors may be more than a filter in postinjury response and may directly influence biomechanical loading. (via Semantic Scholar)
