Sammanfattning : All trunk muscles are important contributors to spine stability. However, the deepest abdominal muscle, transversus abdominis (TrA), with its characteristically horizontal fibre orientation seems to serve a unique function in trunk motor control. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : The overall aim of this thesis was to study the myouelectric activity of all major muscles involved in the movements and stabilization of the trunk, pelvis and hips during training exercises, postures, motor tasks, maximal strength performance and locomotion. By use of ultra-sound, EMG electrodes could be guided safely and accurately into muscles situated even close to the spinal column, such as psoas, quadratus lumborum and deep parts of erector spinae.

Sammanfattning : The overall aim of this thesis was to characterize the biomechanics and neuromuscular control of the human trunk in response to asymmetric lateral loading. The pulling force and strength capacities as well as muscle activation patterns, trunk kinematics and postural balance in relation to lateral trunk flexion and loading were given special consideration.

Sammanfattning : Paper I. The aim was to elucidate if testosterone (T) dose-dependently increase muscle size in abdomen and pelvis, analogous to the known anabolic influence on appendicular muscles. Participants were young (age 18-50) healthy men participating in the 5a-reductase trail, a double blinded RCT. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Patients with cervical cord injuries (M) and slowly progressive neuromuscular diseases, such as prior polio and muscular dystrophy, often have decreased ventilatory capacity. This could affect both their daytime level of activity and sleep quality. LÄS MER
