Tansel, Rıfat Baran; SALCI, YAŞAR; Yıldırım, Ahmet; Koçak, Mehmet Settar; Korkusuz, Feza (IOS Press, 2008-01-01)
Objective: To investigate the effects of eccentric hamstring training on strength measures and vertical jumping performance.
Realization of human gait in virtual fluid environment on a robotic gait trainer for therapeutic purposes
Ertop, Tayfun Efe; Yuksel, Tolga; Konukseven, Erhan İlhan (Elsevier BV, 2018-7)
Patients with disorders such as spinal cord injury, cerebral palsy and stroke can perform full gait when assisted, which progressively helps them regain the ability to walk. A very common way to create assistive effects is aquatic therapy. Aquatic environment also creates resistive effects desired for strength building. In this study, realization of a virtual fluid environment on a robotic gait trainer is presented as an alternative method. A model was created to determine torques and forces acting on the h...
The effects of eccentric hamstring training on lower extremity strength and landing kinetics in recreational female athletes
SALCI, YAŞAR; Yıldırım, Ahmet; Celik, Ozgur; Ak, Emre; Kocak, Settar; Korkusuz, Feza (IOS Press, 2013-01-01)
Hamstring training involving eccentric loading is an important protective factor in hamstring injuries. However, the effect of this mode of training on lower extremity loading in landing maneuver performance is unknown. The purpose of this study was to examine variations in eccentric hamstring strength after 10-weeks training program and the possible changes in landing kinetics. Twenty five recreational female athletes were voluntarily assigned to the Nordic Hamstraing Strength Training (N = 13) or control ...
A Multivariate Approach to Assessing Anaerobic Power Following a Plyometric Training Program
Koçak, Mehmet Settar (Ovid Technologies (Wolters Kluwer Health), 1997-01-01)
This study used a multivariate approach to assess anaerobic power in 20 athletes and 20 nonathletes undergoing 6 weeks of plyometric training, and 20 controls. A 3 x 2 mixed model MANOVA was done to analyze the pre-and posttest scores of vertical jump, 50-m dash, and Margaria-Kalamen stairclimbing test. The Group x Test interaction was significant (p < 0.001). Both groups that underwent plyometric training improved significantly (p < 0.01) on all tests of anaerobic power. Of the dependent measures, the Marg...
