How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

Article
We herein studied whether arm-pointing movements from an upright posture (i.e. Belenkii's paradigm) toward various targets demanding a low degree of precision could influence associated anticipatory postural adjustments (APAs) and subsequent arm movements. Six subjects were asked to use their right arm to point (without finger touch) to targets of...
Article
We herein examined whether immediate muscular activity (active recovery) after stretching decreased stretch-induced strength deficits in human muscles. Our within-subject study included 8 subjects who were used as their own controls. For each subject, both legs were subjected to the same warm-up and stretching treatments, and then one leg was expos...

RésuméIntroduction L'objectif était d'élaborer un nouveau test navette de terrain afin d'améliorer la fiabilité d'estimation de la vitesse maximale aérobie en course. Le nouveau test présente une incrémentation en rampe et masquée de vitesse à la différence de l'incrémentation par palier et des annonces verbales des tests classiques à palier. Synth...

A new method to measure the leg stiffness in hopping and bouncing, with simple technical equipment and under field conditions, is introduced and validated. The leg stiffness (K (N)) was calculated from only contact and flight times measured by a contact mat. It was compared to the reference stiffness (K (R)) obtained from force platform measurement...

The purpose of this study was to describe the force/velocity and power/velocity relationships obtained during squat exercise. The maximal force (F0) was extrapolated from the force/velocity relationship and compared to the isometric force directly measured with the aid of a force platform placed under the subject's feet. Fifteen international downh...

This study determined the validity and reliability of the kinematic device developed by Bosco et al. (1965) by comparing its peak force, peak velocity, and peak power measurements to data obtained simultaneously with a force platform placed under the subject's feet. Fifteen international downhill skiers performed maximal half-squats on a guided bar...
Article
This study was done to determine whether leg stiffness (Kleg) during running was related to rearfoot-to-forefoot angle in standing (RFAst) and running (RFArun). Footprints obtained from 32 subjects were used to calculate RFAst and RFArun, defined as positive when forefoot axis was abducted from rearfoot axis. A spring-mass model was used to calcula...
Article
Summary This study intended to determine the validity of a kinematic device by comparing force, velocity and power measurements to data obtained simultaneously with a force platform placed under the subject's feet. Fifteen international downhill skiers performed maximal half-squats on a guided machine with loads of 60–180 kg. The two systems gave s...
Article
Summary The reliability and the interest of isometric force assessment during a squat position were studied on 22 alpine skiers. They have been classified according to their speciality into Slalom, Giant and Downhill groups. The assessments of maximal isometric force and rate of force development (RFD, N·s−1) were reliable. No differences between g...
Article
The purpose of this study was to determine the possible mechanisms explaining the interindividual differences in foot orientations observed during running. Foot orientations, foot pressures, and ankle dorsiflexion and plantarflexion were simultaneously recorded on 12 male subjects running barefooted at 3.9 +/- 0.6 m.sec-1. The abduction of the fore...
