What can be concluded, however, is that the MMG amplitude and center frequency versus force patterns did not change when the signal from the same location of the skin over the rectus femoris was measured in the PERP and TRAN axes.
The electrodes were placed at a 50% imaginary line between the anterior-posterior iliac spine, and the superior edge of the patella of the rectus femoris muscle.
In terms of physical risk factors, there were between-group differences in favour of the experimental group in hamstring and iliopsoas muscle length and neural mobility and these were largely maintained 3 months later whereas there were no statistically significant between-group differences in rectus femoris length, lumbar stability or proprioception (Table 2).
