For the rectus femoris
muscle, the tape was applied from 10 cm below the anterior superior iliac spine to the superior edge of the patella (without tension).
The pH of biceps femoris
muscle was measured in triplicates following the procedure of Bendall (1973) using a portable pH meter (Sentron Argus-X, Roden, Netherland).
Results from another study showed 28 of 42 patients with hip pain of varying etiologies responded to surgical neurectomy of the obturator and quadratus femoris
components, where failures were attributed to an extrapelvic surgical approach and variability in joint innervation.
2011) Electromyography activity and rate of muscle fatigue of the quadriceps femoris
during cycling exercise in the severe domain.
The activation characteristic of Rectus femoris
] muscle is 35, 36 and 39 and in right leg is 38, 12 and 8 in amplitude for all three cases respectively.
Anterolateral thigh flap tunneled beneath the rectus femoris
The common peroneal nerve (CPN) continues along the medial margin of the biceps femoris
, towards the posterior fibular head.
The rectus femoris
originates at the front of the ilium, which is part of the pelvis.
Examined muscles of upper and lower extremity Proximal muscles Distal muscles Deltoid- medial head Brachioradialis Biceps brachii Flexor carpi radialis Triceps Extansor digitorum communis Iliopsoas Flexor carpi ulnaris Tensor facia lata First dorsal interossous Rectus femoris
Tibialis anterior Vastus lateralis Peroneus longus Vastus medialis Gastrocnemius medial head Table 2.
Specifically, muscle activation patterns were assessed bilaterally for the rectus femoris
, biceps femoris
, tibialis anterior, and lateral head of the gastrocnemius.
Probably the proximal center of tibia shows the preformed joint of sesamoid to tibia and in addition is a tool to reinforce the joint of quadriceps femoris
Bipolar Ag-AgCl surface electrodes were used for electromyography (EMG) recordings (silver bar electrodes, diameter 10 mm, centre-to-centre distance 20 mm) of the long head of the vastus lateralis and biceps femoris
(Data-Log type no.
From an anatomical point of view, HVLIA should be particularly useful for THA because the articular and cutaneous sensory supply of the hip region is complex and may extend from T12 (subcostal nerve) to S1 (proximal sciatic branches including the nerve to quadratus femoris
and superior gluteal nerve).
31) suggested that straight leg raises would be as effective as active knee extension in developing quadriceps femoris
The results show that one of the extension muscles of the knee, rectus femoris
muscle, belonging to the quadriceps muscle group, has different contraction, contraction maintenance and recovery times according to the specific position of the player on the pitch.
