For anterior and posterior movement, laxity was not different in both males and females. The anterior movement had slightly a bit more laxity, but posterior had the same laxity for both males and females. Internal and external rotation was much greater in females than in males. The biggest difference was in internal rotation. Valgus and varus forces showed that females had greater laxity. The valgus force was much greater than the varus force.

Multiple studies focusing on joint measurement and the methods used signified that intra-rater reliability was accurate when compared to inter-rater reliability. Examiners used the same universal goniometers, along with other devices to measure joint position and ROM. Their finding lead them to the conclusion of measurements taken by the same person on the same individual were more accurate, than those compared to multiple examiners taking the same measurements on the same individual. However,
When becoming acquainted with an individual for the first time, a decision on the person’s gender is made. Various physical features are sexually dimorphic in individuals. Males are depicted as more muscular, taller, heavier, greater distribution of hair while females tend to be smaller in muscle and have more curvature in their bodies. Bruce and Burton (1993) found that hair length and clothing are most common indications reported amongst adults and children. The issue with these ‘superficial’ cues is that they can easily be manipulated and changed with little effort. Hair length can be short or long on males and females as well as having similar clothing types. However with the absence of these cues presented to participants on photographs,
During quiet standing, the body postural ways normally occur in the sagittal (75%) and frontal (11%) planes around the ankle joint although a person tries to stand still (P. A. Federolf, 2016). These information support the idea that human body is modeled as an invert pendulum during the analysis of
In research by Weiss (2003) the effects of body size, age, sex, and cross sectional on muscle markers that are commonly used to construct past lifestyles and activity patterns. The research was conducted because
Past research on limb asymmetry during running has focused on asymmetry of runners tested with treadmills (Girard, et.al, 2017). A novel device, pedoped (Novel, Munich, Germany), measures the normal force between the foot and shoe, which serves as a surrogate measure for the vertical ground reaction force. The ground reaction
Venture 1: S.P.I.N.E Value Proposition Monitoring posture and breaking bad habits that affect the integrity of your spinal health is difficult. Once formed, these habits can result in many spinal curvature disorders that can last a lifetime. For those with disorders such as scoliosis, there is a need to develop good spinal habits to alleviate the symptoms of their disorder. Although Physical Therapists and movement experts are a viable solution to teach proper body mechanics, patients often forget or have difficulty assessing their own habits effectively when they leave therapy.
Men and women ages 15 to 30 experience physiological differences and similarities of the cardiovascular, respiratory, and musculoskeletal systems. There are many physiological differences between gender including height, weight, body composition, hormones, bone structure, and lung capacity. These changes play a role during exercise as the body systems undergoes specific adaptations to meet the demand of the active muscles. The differences and similarities discussed in the following paragraphs are significant when designing an exercise program.
• Muscle activity. Muscle activity was recorded using a Bagnoli EMG system (Delsys, Boston, MA, USA) from 7 upper extremities muscles: flexor carpi ulnaris (FCU), extensor carpi ulnaris (ECU), extensor carpi radialis brevis (ECRB), triceps, anterior deltoid, middle deltoid, and upper trapezius using single differential electrodes. The muscle activity data were
For healthy controls, rotating a stimulus 180 typically results in slower and less accurate responses compared to upright stimulus presentations (Reed, Stone, Bozova, & Tanaka, 2003). This effect is especially pronounced for faces and bodies, compared to other stimuli such as houses and landscapes (Diamond & Carey, 1986; Reed et al., 2003; Yin, 1969).For example, face inversion typically results in a 20 to 30 per cent decrease in recognition accuracy compared to upright faces. However, inverting other non-face stimuli usually only produces an accuracy detriment of 0 to 10 per cent (Carey,
Abstract What separates us from other animals? We have the ability to form words and we can develop further because of that. Humans are great at facial recognition in an upright orientation but they typically have trouble when it comes to inversion that being when the picture is in upside down
Facial Contrast In a research on sexual dimorphism, respondents were asked to determine whether the person on an image is male or female. In reality, the same face was presented twice to the participants, changing only the contrast in the image. The results are no surprise, however. The image with greater contrast was considered more feminine.
Literature Review on the Influential Factors of the Sit-to-Stand Movement Performance Xiao Yu San Jose State University Literature Review on the Influential Factors of the Sit-to-Stand Movement Performance The sit-to-stand (STS) movement, as a critical criterion to determine people’s functional level of the motor skills, is one of the most common used activities in
Sell et al. (2009) address the relationship of anger to the ability to inflict costs and confer benefits during negotiation through bargaining. This is assessed within the recalibrational theory of anger which theorises there is an evolutionarily derived anger system that is used in bargaining to gain favourable outcomes by
