Muscle mechanics and performance of cyclists and triatheletes: kinematics, pedal forces and ultrasound evaluation

Aim: To compare ultrasound and kinematic methods of estimating muscle length. The second aim is to compare muscle lengths, muscle activity, joint kinematics, pedal forces and oxygen uptake of cyclists and triathletes riding with different positions on the saddle.

Gepec personnel involved: Rodrigo Bini, Fabio Lanferdini

 

Determinants of asymmetries in neuromuscular parameters of rhythmic movements like pedalling

Aim: to investigate the neuromuscular factors determining asymmetry during pedalling.

Gepec personal involved: Felipe Carpes, Rodrigo Bini, Frederico Dagnese

 

Fatigue effects on perturbed locomotion

Aim: Assess fatigue effects on lower limb muscles including cycling motion

Gepec personal involved: Felipe Carpes

 

Relationships between power output, pedaling cadence and fatigue on saddle pressure and comfort of cyclists

Aim: To analyze the effects of power output, pedaling cadence and fatigue on saddle pressure and comfort of recreational and competitive cyclists.

Gepec personal involved: Frederico Dagnese, Elisandro Martins, Felipe Carpes

 

Neuromuscular responses to prolonged pedaling: a comparison subjects with and without low back pain

Aim: to assess neuromuscular responses to prolonged cycling in subjects with and without low back pain in an attempt to identify the participation of muscle fatigue and conditioning of core muscles on low back discomfort during prolonged cycling.

Gepec personal involved: Elisandro Martins, Frederico Dagnese, Rodrigo Bini, Felipe Carpes

 

Workload, pedaling cadence and fatigue effects on full body kinematics during cycling

Aim: To assess the effects of workload, pedaling cadence and fatigue on bilateral asymmetries and full body kinematics of cyclists

Gepec personal involved: Frederico Dagnese, Felipe Carpes, Rodrigo Bini

 

Muscle balance and performance of cyclists, triathletes and non-athletes during bilateral and single leg cycling

Aim: To assess differences in muscle balance and lower limb biomechanics during bilateral, single leg unassisted and single leg assisted cycling

Gepec personal involved: Rodrigo Bini, Fábio Lanferdini, Tiago Jacques
