An Apparatus for studying the Neural Control and Biomechanics of Bilateral Coordination in Conventional Versus Novel Pedaling 840029
An unusual stationary pedaling system has been built to teat the interaction of neural control and biomechanics during difficult bilateral coordination tasks. Subjects are tested during both conventional and novel pedaling. Neuromuscular and biomechanical data (electro-mayograms, kinematics and pedaling forces) are collected as the subject pedals. A brief discussion of the study's rationale, theoretical approach and preliminary results is presented as background to an understanding of the functional design features of the apparatus.
