  • Task specific muscular fatigue measure

    Hello everyone,

    I am designing a study to examine the effects of practice
    and task parameters on knee load patterns during step
    landings.

    It is important that muscular fatigue is controlled for
    during the experiment protocol and I was wondering if anyone
    may be able to guide me towards an appropriate rest interval
    between step landing trials to prevent fatigue accumulation.

    I am also very interested in any functional, task specific
    measures of muscular fatigue that anyone has come across
    that would apply to a step-landing movement (essentially
    simultaneous eccentric contractions of the knee & hip
    extensors and ankle plantarflexors)

    Any feedback on this issue would be greatly appreciated,
    thanks.
