Force-velocity-power profiling of maximal effort sprinting, jumping and hip thrusting: Exploring the importance of force orientation specificity for assessing neuromuscular function.

J Sports Sci 2021 May 6:1-8. Epub 2021 May 6.

Institute for Nutrition, Exercise and Sports, Department of Integrative Physiology, University of Copenhagen, Copenhagen, Denmark.

Comprehensive information regarding neuromuscular function, as assessed through force-velocity-power (FVP) profiling, is of importance for training optimization in athletes. However, neuromuscular function is highly task-specific, potentially governed by dissimilarity of the overall orientation of forceapplication. The hip thrust (HT) exercise is thought to be of relevance for sprinting considering its antero-posterior force orientation and considerable hip-extensor recruitment, however, the association between their respective FVP profiles remains unexplored.

Tibial Mechanical Axis Is Nonorthogonal to the Floor in Varus Knee Alignment.

Arthroplast Today 2021 Apr 15;8:237-242. Epub 2021 Apr 15.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, University of California, San Francisco, San Francisco, CA, USA.

Background: Classical models of the knee assume the joint line is parallel to the floor and the tibial mechanical axis (TMA) is orthogonal to the floor. Our study characterizes the angle subtended by the TMA and floor during bipedal stance, called the tibial axis orientation angle (TAOA), and tests the assumption that the TMA should be orthogonal to the floor.

Methods: We reviewed the nonoperative knee on full-length, standing radiographs in patients undergoing total knee arthroplasty between 2013 and 2017. Read More

The metabolic and mechanical consequences of altered propulsive force generation in walking.

J Biomech 2021 Apr 18;122:110447. Epub 2021 Apr 18.

Joint Department of Biomedical Engineering, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and North Carolina State University, Chapel Hill, NC, USA. Electronic address:

Older adults walk with greater metabolic energy consumption than younger for reasons that are not well understood. We suspect that a distal-to-proximal redistribution of leg muscle demand, from muscles spanning the ankle to those spanning the hip, contributes to greater metabolic energy costs. Recently, we found that when younger adults using biofeedback target smaller than normal peak propulsive forces (F), they do so via a similar redistribution of leg muscle demand during walking.

Karolinska Institutet, Department of Clinical Sciences, Danderyd Hospital, Division of Orthopaedics, Stockholm, Sweden.

Background: The goal of treatment for a proximal hamstring avulsion (PHA) is an objectively restored muscle and a subjectively satisfied, pain-free patient at follow-up. Different self-reported and performance-based outcome measures have been used to evaluate recovery, but their validity is poorly investigated.

Purpose: To investigate 1) the correlation between the commonly used self-reported outcome measurements, the Perth Hamstring Assessment Tool (PHAT) and the Lower Extremity Functional Scale (LEFS); 2) to what extent these scores can be explained by physical dysfunction as measured by performance-based tests; 3) whether performance-based tests can discriminate between the injured and uninjured extremity; and 4) which activity limitations are perceived by patients several years after the injury.
