  • Muscle work is biased toward energy generation over dissipation in non-level running 

    DeVita, Paul; Janshen, Lars; Rider, Patrick; Solnik, Stanislaw; Hortobágyi, Tibor (East Carolina University, 2008-12-05)
    This study tested the hypothesis that skeletal muscles generate more mechanical energy in gait tasks that raise the center of mass compared to the mechanical energy they dissipate in gait tasks that lower the center of ...
  • Muscles do more positive than negative work in human locomotion 

    DeVita, Paul; Helseth, Joseph; Hortobágyi, Tibor (East Carolina University, 2007-10)
    Muscle work during level walking and ascent and descent ramp and stairway walking was assessed in order to explore the proposition that muscles perform more positive than negative work during these locomotion tasks. Thirty ...
