Valami nagyon bizarr azokkal a publikaciokkal.
Peldanak nezzuk a harmadikat (az elso egy nem publikalt belso jelentes).
Ezt talalom a megadott linken, az MTB-s oldalrol letolthetoen, ez nem folyoirat-publikacio formatum, hat megkerestem, van-e ilyen pyblikacio?
Van, de egesz mast mond!!!!

Laboratory (HPL) is one of the world leaders in basic and applied research related to
human neuro-musculo-skeletal health and well being from birth to old age. The HPL is a
multidisciplinary research group consisting of nine full-time and seven adjunct faculty
members (professors) with research backgrounds in anatomy, muscle mechanics,
physiology, motor control, biochemistry and biomechanics. The total working force of the
HPL includes approximately 100 full-time equivalent researchers, visiting professors, postdoctoral fellows, graduate students, as well as secretarial and technical assistance. The
HPL has an international flavour with a constant presence of students, fellows and
professors visiting, studying and participating in collaborative research from all over the
Last year, the research activities of the HPL have been assessed by an independent
external reviewer as “…. the best in the world in Clinical Biomechanical Research.”
The HPL is specialized to study the mechanical and neuro-physiological effects of
medical devices for prevention and rehabilitation of movement related problems.
Ez meg a publikacio, amit nem linkelnek, amit az adott parameterekkel megtalalhat valaki:Effect of an unstable shoe construction on lower extremitygait characteristics
Benno Nigg *, Sabrina Hintzen, Reed Ferber Human Performance Laboratory, Faculty of Kinesiology, University of Calgary, Calgary, Alberta, Canada T2N 1N4Received 9 March 2005; accepted 17 August 2005 AbstractBackground.
To compare kinematics, kinetics and muscle activity during standing and walking for healthy subjects using anunstable test shoe (Masai Barefoot Technology, MBT) and a stable control shoe.Methods. Eight subjects volunteered for this study. During quiet standing, center of pressure excursion and muscle activity weredetermined. During walking, lower extremity kinematics, kinetics, and muscle electromyographic (EMG) signals were determined.Data were collected for the two shoe conditions after a 2 week accommodation period. Statistics included repeated measures ANO-VAs (a = 0.05) and post hoc tests where appropriate.Findings. During quiet standing, the center of pressure excursion was significantly and substantially greater in the unstable com-pared to the control shoe. Electromyographic intensity increased in the unstable test shoe for all tested muscles, but only signifi-cantly for the tibialis anterior. During locomotion, kinematics were similar
in the two shoe conditions except for the initialplantar–dorsiflexion, which showed a significant more dorsiflexed position during the first half of stance in the unstable test shoecompared to the stable control shoe. The angular impulses did not show any significant differences
between the two shoe conditionsfor all three joints but some trends towards a reduction for the knee and hip joint. There were no significant differences in electro-myographic activities
between the control and the unstable shoe. However, several muscles showed some trends.Interpretation. The unstable shoe produced changes and trends in kinematic, kinetic and electromyographic characteristics thatseemed to be advantageous for the locomotor system. Further studies should investigate muscle strength, dynamic stability, painreduction for arthritic knees and injury prevention for high performance athletes
when using the unstable shoes.© 2005 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved
