筋電位測定による筋疲労軽減タイプ弾力靴下の衣服圧設計 Clothing Pressure Design of High Elastic Knee-Socks Using EMG for Reducing Muscle Fatigue
This study aims to obtain some guidelines for designing high elastic knee-socks that will reduce muscle fatigue. Fourteen young women were employed as test subjects. Four samples of high elastic knee-socks with differing tensile property were used. We examined the relation between clothing pressure and the results of an electromyogram (EMG) of subject's legs when walking.<br>The results showed that the socks were effective when the clothing pressure at Tibialis Anterior (TA) was about 1.7 kPa, Gastrocnemius Lateral Head (GLH) at about 1.5kPa, and Gastrocnemius Medial Head (GMH) at about 1.1 kPa. At the Soleus, the socks with less elongation in the warp direction were effective.
