RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE SEQUENTIAL MOVEMENT, MUSCLE CO-CONTRACTION AND KLNEMATLC VARIABLES OF FLYING DISC BACKHAND THROWING
Keywords: Flying disc throwing, sequential, correlation, Cccontraction Index
AbstractThe aim of this study was to analyse sequential movement of segments and co-contraction index and its correlation with kinematic variables. Disc trajectory and velocity (DV) variables calculated according to the medio-lateral (DOM) and vertical (DOV) displacement. The time differences calculated according to maximum linear velocity of segments from proximal to distal and reported as shoulder & elbow (S-E), elbow & wrist (E-W), wrist & finger (W-F). Co-contraction index (CI) were calculated for flexor and extensor carpi radialis. DV and S-E, W-F, DOM showed correlation which may be caused by the sequential movement of S-E, W-F and the displacement of the disc. Also, there was a correlation between the CI, DOM and DOV. Therefore, decrease of time gap between the segment movements and higher CI may increase the DV effectively.
