Stenroth, Lauri (2012)Achilles tendon is the largest tendon in human body and it has an important role in human locomotion. Ageing is associated with lowered muscle function and the changes in tendon properties could have a major role in ...
Peltonen, Jussi; Cronin, Neil; Stenroth, Lauri; Finni Juutinen, Taija; Avela, Janne (Springer, 2013)It has been postulated that human tendons are viscoelastic and their mechanical properties time-dependent. Although Achilles tendon (AT) mechanics are widely reported, there is no consensus about AT viscoelastic properties ...

Effect of Training-Induced Changes in Achilles Tendon Stiffness on Muscle–Tendon Behavior During Landing Werkhausen, Amelie; Albracht, Kirsten; Cronin, Neil; Paulsen, Gøran; Bojsen-Møller, Jens; Seynnes, Olivier R. (Frontiers Research Foundation, 2018)During rapid deceleration of the body, tendons buffer part of the elongation of the muscle–tendon unit (MTU), enabling safe energy dissipation via eccentric muscle contraction. Yet, the influence of changes in tendon ...
Training-induced increase in Achilles tendon stiffness affects tendon strain pattern during running Werkhausen, Amelie; Cronin, Neil; Albracht, Kirsten; Paulsen, Gøran; Larsen, Askild V.; Bojsen-Møller, Jens; Seynnes, Olivier R. (PeerJ, Ltd., 2019)Background: During the stance phase of running, the elasticity of the Achilles tendon enables the utilisation of elastic energy and allows beneficial contractile conditions for the triceps surae muscles. However, the ...
