Stability was reduced in this study by using a narrow medial-lateral base of support that required neuromuscular activity to provide frontal plane support.
It is hypothesized that the external rotation of the foot will decrease the frontal plane knee moments and that the golf swing loads will be greater than those for basic activities of daily living, but not as large as those for other athletic maneuvers.
9[degrees] in the frontal plane and placed in a neutral (parallel to the neck) position in the sagittal plane in 40 hips (58%), anteverted with respect to the neck in 17 hips (25%), and retroverted with respect to the neck in 12 hips (17%).
The optimized combination of QRS-vector indicators for discrimination between healthy controls and patients with anterior STEMI includes amplitude of the maximal vector in the frontal and sagittal planes, angle a of the maximal vector in the sagittal plane and the area of the loop in the frontal plane.
Because basketball is a multi-planar sport and quickness is a multi-planar skill, the strength and conditioning programs should devote time to training on all these planes, particularly the frontal plane.
To determine the visual angle of each eye, sections from the frontal plane were used.
