Abstract

The aim of the study was to investigate the modulation of the soleus H-reflex during static and dynamic imposed hip angle changes. Five healthy subjects participated. H-reflexes were measured during hip joint passively flexed and extended in the sagittal plane. In flexion phase, the soleus H-reflex during dynamic conditions was lower than the stationary controls. By contrast, it was conversely higher in extension phase. The findings suggest that the modulation of the soleus H-reflex from hip proprioceptors is a major factor in passive hip movement. Additionally, the central pattern generator might modulate the soleus H-reflex.
