The purpose of this study was to determine whether or not surgical floor mats affect low back and leg muscle activity during prolonged standing.
The EMG activity was measured continuously using surface electrodes on the paraspinal muscles of the low back and on the anterior tibialis muscles; the subjects were normal and stood on two different surfaces.
Six male subject were each instructed to stand for two hours on a specially designed surgical floor mat and then, on a separate day, to stand for two hours on a linoleum-covered concrete surface.
