Institute of Biomechanics and Orthopaedics, German Sport University Cologne, Germany
J Biomech 43:2120-5. 2010..The results imply higher mechanical stress in shod running for the knee joint structures during midstance but also indicate an improved mechanical advantage in force generation for the ankle extensors during the push-off phase...
- Lower leg musculoskeletal geometry and sprint performanceKiros Karamanidis
Institute of Biomechanics and Orthopaedics, German Sport University Cologne, Am Sportpark Müngersdorf 6, 50933 Cologne, Germany
Gait Posture 34:138-41. 2011..Our findings provide evidence that differences in sprint ability in world-class athletes are not a result of differences in the geometrical design of the lower leg even when considering both skeletal and muscular components...
