... evidence that gravity acts as constraint on AMC involving vertical rhythmic movement. As we could not measure the biomechanical rate limit of this task directly, we used the f max among all trials for the analysis. This was because some of the dancers had a dance technique called the vibration...

...G. A. Cavagna; N. C. Heglund; P. A. Willems SUMMARY The effect of an increase in gravity on the mechanics of running has been studied by using a force platform fixed to the floor of an aircraft undergoing flight profiles, resulting in a simulated gravity of 1.3 g . The power spent to maintain...
