Bruhn, Sven ; Leukel, Christian ; Gollhofer, Albert

In: Human Movement Science, 2011, vol. 30, no. 6, p. 1079-1091

When stretching muscles of the ankle joint, stretch velocity and amplitude were shown to selectively influence specific parts of the stretch reflex. The present study investigated whether similar effects can be observed at the knee joint. Seventeen subjects were exposed to sudden anterior tibial translations. The influence of stimulus amplitude was analyzed by applying a low (LIMP) or high...
