Quantifying mechanical and metabolic interdependence between speed and propulsive force during walking


By: R. Pimentel n, J. Feldman n, M. Lewek* & J. Franz n

author keywords: gait; locomotion; treadmill; walking economy; energy expenditure; push-off
TL;DR: Empirical data is provided in support of an interdependent relation between propulsive force (FP) and walking speed, building confidence that interventions designed to increase FP will translate to improved walking speed. (via Semantic Scholar)

Peak sagittal plane spine kinematics in female gymnasts with and without a history of low back pain


By: R. Pimentel n, M. Potter*, J. Carollo*, D. Howell* & E. Sweeney*

author keywords: Gymnastics; Motion capture; Movement; Sensors
MeSH headings : Adolescent; Adult; Athletes; Biomechanical Phenomena; Child; Female; Gymnastics; Humans; Low Back Pain / physiopathology; Mechanical Phenomena; Movement; Spine / physiology; Spine / physiopathology
TL;DR: Gymnasts with back pain had similar spine peak extension, peak flexion, and range of motion during back walkovers and back handsprings compared to gymnasts without back pain. (via Semantic Scholar)
