2000 - Fellow of the Indian National Academy of Engineering (INAE)
Physical medicine and rehabilitation, Electromyography, Reflex, Isometric exercise and Elbow are his primary areas of study. He combines subjects such as Stroke, Hemiparesis, Physical therapy and Muscle contraction with his study of Physical medicine and rehabilitation. His research in Electromyography intersects with topics in Metacarpophalangeal joint, Anatomy, Motor control, Noise and Psychophysics.
When carried out as part of a general Reflex research project, his work on Stretch reflex and Ankle jerk reflex is frequently linked to work in Body movement, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study. The concepts of his Isometric exercise study are interwoven with issues in Intermittent hypoxia, Index finger, Communication and Action potential duration. He has researched Elbow in several fields, including Biceps, Torque and Forearm.
His primary areas of investigation include Physical medicine and rehabilitation, Electromyography, Reflex, Stroke and Isometric exercise. William Z. Rymer is interested in Spasticity, which is a field of Physical medicine and rehabilitation. His work in Electromyography tackles topics such as Motor unit which are related to areas like Muscle contraction, Dorsum, Motor unit recruitment and Neurophysiology.
William Z. Rymer focuses mostly in the field of Reflex, narrowing it down to matters related to Anatomy and, in some cases, Spinal cord. His study in Stroke is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Paresis, Thumb and Weakness. His Isometric exercise study incorporates themes from Index finger, Chronic stroke and Contraction.
His primary scientific interests are in Physical medicine and rehabilitation, Stroke, Isometric exercise, Electromyography and Motor unit. His Physical medicine and rehabilitation research includes themes of Muscle weakness and Reflex. His research integrates issues of Paresis, Treadmill, Spastic and Spasticity in his study of Stroke.
His studies deal with areas such as Chronic stroke, Elbow, Muscle contraction, Anatomy and Motor coordination as well as Isometric exercise. His Electromyography research incorporates elements of Neurophysiology, Neurology and Motor control. His research in Motor unit focuses on subjects like Contraction, which are connected to Muscle fatigue.
The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Physical medicine and rehabilitation, Electromyography, Isometric exercise, Motor unit and Stroke. His Physical medicine and rehabilitation research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Chronic stroke and Neuroscience. The Electromyography study combines topics in areas such as Spinal cord injury, Anesthesia, Neurology and Mixture model.
His study looks at the intersection of Isometric exercise and topics like Contraction with Muscle fatigue and Motor unit firing rate. The various areas that he examines in his Motor unit study include Hemispheric stroke, Muscle weakness and Motor unit recruitment. In Stroke, William Z. Rymer works on issues like Motor control, which are connected to Trajectory.
