  • Contribution of individual quadriceps muscles to knee joint mechanics 

    Han, Seongwon; Sawatsky, Andrew; Fontana, Heiliane de Brito; Herzog, Walter (Kinesiology, University of Calgary, Publisher's version, 2019-03)
    Many attempts have been made to determine the contribution of individual muscles in an agonistic group to the mechanics of joints. However, previous approaches had the limitations that muscles often could not be controlled ...
  • Absence of differences between male and female adolescents with prior sport concussion 

    Brooks, Brian L; Mrazik, Martin; Barlow, Karen M; McKay, Carly D; Meeuwisse, Willem H; Emery, Carolyn A (Wolters Kluwer, Cumming School of Medicine, Kinesiology, University of Calgary, University of Alberta, http://www.wkopenhealth.com/Institutions.html, Post-print, 2014-01)
    Sex differences following concussion are poorly understood. The purpose of this study was to examine whether male and female adolescent athletes with prior concussions differ regarding neurocognitive function and symptom ...
  • Subjective, but not objective, lingering effects of multiple past concussions in adolescents 

    Brooks, Brian L; McKay, Carly D; Mrazik, Martin; Barlow, Karen M; Meeuwisse, Willem H; Emery, Carolyn A (Mary Ann Liebert, Inc., Kinesiology, University of Calgary, https://home.liebertpub.com/page/self-archiving/51, 2013-09-01)
    The existing literature on lingering effects from concussions in children and adolescents is limited and mixed, and there are no clear answers for patients, clinicians, researchers, or policy makers. The purpose of this ...
  • Stiffness of Hip Adductor Myofibrils is decreased in Children with Spastic Cerebral Palsy 

    Leonard, Timothy R.; Howard, Jason J.; Larkin-Kaiser, Kelly A.; Joumaa, Venus; Logan, Karl J.; Orlik, Benjamin; El-Hawary, Ron; Gauthier, Luke E.; Herzog, Walter (Elsevier, Kinesiology, Human Performance Lab, University of Calgary, IWK Health Centre, Halifax, Weill Cornell Medicine, Sidra Medicine, Qatar, Post-print, 2019-02-23)
    Cerebral palsy (CP) is the result of a static brain lesion which causes spasticity and muscle contracture. The source of the increased passive stiffness in patients is not understood and while whole muscle down to single ...
  • A Stochastic Simulation of Skeletal Muscle Calcium Transients in a Structurally Realistic Sarcomere Model using MCell 

    Holash, Robert John; MacIntosh, Brian R. (PLOS Computational Biology, Kinesiology, Human Performance Lab, University of Calgary, 2019-01-30)
    Skeletal muscle contraction is initiated when an action potential triggers the release of Ca2+ into the sarcomere in a process referred to as excitation-contraction coupling. The speed and scale of this process makes direct ...
  • Quadrupedal Locomotion-Respiration Entrainment and Metabolic Economy in Cross-Country Skiers 

    Boldt, Kevin Rudi; Killick, Anthony; Herzog, Walter (Kinesiology, 2016-02)
    A 1:1 locomotion-respiration entrainment is observed in galloping quadrupeds, and is thought to improve running economy. However, this has not been tested directly in animals, as animals cannot voluntarily disrupt this ...
  • Energetic Considerations in Cross-Country Skiing 

    Herzog, Walter; Killick, Anthony; Boldt, Kevin Rudi (Springer, Kinesiology, Human Performance Lab, University of Calgary, 2015-01)
    Cross-country skiing is a four-legged gait, and some gait patterns, such as 2-skate skiing, are similar to those adopted by animals (galloping horse). Four-legged animals change gait patterns with increasing speeds of ...
  • Predictive factors for reporting adverse events following spinal manipulation in randomized clinical trials - secondary analysis of a systematic review 

    Gorrell, Lindsay M.; Engel, Roger Mark; Lystad, R. P.; Brown, Benjamin T. (Musculeoskeletal Science and Practice, Kinesiology, Human Performance Lab, University of Calgary, University of Calgary, https://www.elsevier.com/?a=91173, 2017-08-30)
    Abstract: While spinal manipulative therapy (SMT) is recommended for the treatment of spinal disorders, concerns exist about adverse events associated with the intervention. Adequate reporting of adverse events in clinical ...
  • Assignment of adverse event indexing terms in randomized clinical trials involving spinal manipulative therapy: an audit of records in MEDLINE and EMBASE databases. 

    Gorrell, Lindsay M.; Engel, Roger Mark; Lystad, R. P.; Brown, Benjamin T. (BMC Medical Research Methodology, Kinesiology, Human Performance Lab, University of Calgary, https://bmcmedresmethodol.biomedcentral.com/submission-guidelines/copyright, 2017-03-14)
    Background: Reporting of adverse events in randomized clinical trials (RCTs) is encouraged by the authors of The Consolidated Standards of Reporting Trials (CONSORT) statement. With robust methodological design and adequate ...
  • Effects of footwear and stride length on metatarsal strains and failure in running 

    Firminger, Colin R.; Fung, Anita; Loundagin, Lindsay L.; Edwards, William Brent (Arts, 2017-11)
    The metatarsal bones of the foot are particularly susceptible to stress fracture owing to the high strains they experience during the stance phase of running. Shoe cushioning and stride length reduction represent two ...
