Lower (100[degrees] to 120[degrees] elbow extension) and more backward seat positions with respect to the wheel axle have been associated with lower electromyograph activity [3], lower push frequency [4], higher push angle [4], lower rate of rise of push force [4], smaller elbow and shoulder motions [5], lower oxygen cost, and higher mechanical efficiency [1].

Using the electromyograph (EMG) to monitor muscle function, the electrooculograph (EOG) to monitor eye movement, and the electroencephalograph (EEG) to monitor electrical activity on the brain's surface, sleep researchers revealed that sleep was an actively induced and highly organized brain state with different phases that do not easily fit into a continuum from light to deep sleep.
