“The purpose of our study was, therefore, to investigate whether submaximum biting affects the kinematics of the ankle, knee, and hip joints and the electromyographic (EMG) activity of the leg muscles during bipedal narrow stance and single-leg stance. Twelve healthy young subjects performed force-controlled biting (FB) and non-biting (NB) during bipedal narrow stance and single-leg stance.Although submaximum biting does not change the basic strategy of posture control, it affects neuromuscular co-contraction patterns, resulting in increased kinematic precision. ”
AWARENESS TRAINING OF SUBMAXIMAL BITING FORCES could prevent muscle issues
“In the experimental sessions, the participant performed a submaximal clenching task, at either 7.5%, 10%, 15%, 25%, or 40% of the maximum force.our preliminary findings indicate that several motor units in the masseter muscles are also continuously active during prolonged low-level clenching (unpublished observations).In conclusion, prolonged low-level clenching in healthy young women induced fatigue and decreased pressure-pain thresholds of the masseter and temporalis muscles.”
BITE FORCE GAIN COULD PREVENT SYSTEMIC ISSUES
“Although many studies have already addressed bite force, little is found specifically involving patients with morbid obesity, especially those in particular who are seeking surgical treatment to restore their health, reduce comorbidities, and maintain weight loss with greater effectiveness over a more prolonged periodThe findings that 66.7% of the population of the study had a bite force lower than 10 Kgf (98 N*)in their incisors, indicated that according to previous research.., they have a much lower force than the population as a whole.
