- On the ascent: the soleus operating length is conserved to the ascending limb of the force-length curve across gait mechanics in humansJonas Rubenson
School of Sport Science, Exercise and Health, The University of Western Australia, Crawley, WA, 6009, Australia
J Exp Biol 215:3539-51. 2012..The correlation between L(0) and absolute length change was not explained on the basis of muscle moment arms or joint excursion, suggesting that regulation of muscle strain may occur via tendon stretch...
- Mechanical efficiency of limb swing during walking and running in guinea fowl (Numida meleagris)Jonas Rubenson
School of Sport Science, Exercise and Health, The Univ of Western Australia, 35 Stirling Hwy, Crawley, WA 6009, Australia
J Appl Physiol 106:1618-30. 2009..To understand limb-swing energy use, mechanical functions other than accelerating the limb segments need to be explored, including isometric force production and muscle work arising from active and passive antagonist muscle forces...
- Adaptations for economical bipedal running: the effect of limb structure on three-dimensional joint mechanicsJonas Rubenson
School of Sport Science, Exercise and Health, University of Western Australia, Crawley, Western Australia 6009, Australia
J R Soc Interface 8:740-55. 2011..In the ostrich, energy-saving specializations may also include passive frontal and internal/external rotation load-bearing mechanisms...
- Running in ostriches (Struthio camelus): three-dimensional joint axes alignment and joint kinematicsJonas Rubenson
School of Human Movement and Exercise Science, The University of Western Australia, Crawley, WA, 6009, Australia

- Gait selection in the ostrich: mechanical and metabolic characteristics of walking and running with and without an aerial phaseJonas Rubenson
School of Human Movement and Exercise Science, University of Western Australia, Crawley, WA 6009, Australia
Proc Biol Sci 271:1091-9. 2004..These data suggest a continuum between grounded and aerial running, indicating that they belong to the same locomotor paradigm...
- Reappraisal of the comparative cost of human locomotion using gait-specific allometric analysesJonas Rubenson
School of Human Movement and Exercise Science, The University of Western Australia, Crawley, WA 6009, Australia
J Exp Biol 210:3513-24. 2007..In conclusion, the net costs of running and walking in humans are moderately different from those predicted from allometry and are not remarkable for an animal of its size...
- Bioreactor design for tendon/ligament engineeringTao Wang
Centre for Orthopaedic Translational Research, School of Surgery, University of Western Australia, Crawley, Australia
Tissue Eng Part B Rev 19:133-46. 2013..In this review, we identify the key components, design preferences, and criteria that are required for the development of an ideal bioreactor for engineering tendons and ligaments...
- Performance in a simulated cricket batting innings (BATEX): reliability and discrimination between playing standardsLaurence Houghton
School of Sport Science, Exercise and Health, The University of Western Australia, Perth, WA, Australia
J Sports Sci 29:1097-103. 2011..58 ± 9%, P = 0.01). All other variables were similar between grades. Running-between-the-wickets and skill-performance measures during the BATEX simulation were reliable, thus it can be used in future research...
