... with previous results, net metabolic power was reduced during split-belt adaptation, but changes in mediolateral dynamic balance control were not correlated with the reduction of net metabolic power during split-belt adaptation. Overall, this study has shown that a complementary mechanism of relative foot...

... and wings calculated from wing beat kinematics. Metabolic power was not sensitive to uncertainty in the value of efficiency when estimated from heat transfer modelling. A change in the assumed value of whole animal efficiency from 0.19 to 0.07 (the range of estimates in previous studies) only altered...

... exchange ratio (RER) was assumed to be the mean value measured in the other birds (0.78). This procedure would introduce an error of less than 1% into the calculated V̇ O 2 ( Koteja, 1996 ), given the measured variation in RER. Metabolic power (W) was calculated from V̇ O 2 using the calorific value...
