Sample text

The basic principles of good body mechanics are: a. Assume a position close to the object, or move the position of the object closer to the COG, allowing the use of upper extremities e. f. g. 25 in a shortened position (short lever arms). Lower torque is required, thus allowing muscles to function more efficiently. Likewise, position COG as close to the object’s COG as possible, reducing torque and energy requirements. Widen the BOS by lowering the COG and maintaining the COG within the BOS. Position the feet according to the direction of movement required to perform the activity, thus increasing stability.

A. Pronation 1) A combination of abduction, eversion, and dorsiflexion, pronation is greatest at midstance and can be affected by running speed and by shoe hardness and design. 2) Some degree of pronation is helpful in reducing impact forces, but excessive and very rapid pronation is undesirable. Shoe wear patterns in overpronators show medial wear. b. Supination 1) Supination is a combination of adduction, inversion, and plantarflexion. 2) Excessive supination (marked by excessive shoe wear on the lateral side) at take-off may impair running performance because of misdirection of propulsive forces.

2) Half of a stride is a step, defined as the time from ground contact of one heel to ground contact of the other heel. 3) Normally, 60% of the gait cycle is in stance (foot in contact with the ground), and 40% is in swing (foot not in contact with the ground). b. 5 m/s. Decreases in walking speed occur with aging, injury, and disease. c. 5 m, and a typical stride rate, or cycle rate (CR), is approximately 1 cycle/s. With increasing gait speed, CL and CR increase. d. In the frontal plane, pelvic movement during walking is approximately 5 cm on each side, alternating as each leg assumes a support role.
