    Achilles tendon reflex synonyms, Achilles tendon reflex pronunciation, Achilles tendon reflex translation, English dictionary definition of Achilles tendon reflex. adj. 1. Physiology Being an involuntary action or response, such as a sneeze, blink, or hiccup. Ankle jerk reflex. (Redirected from Achilles reflex) The ankle jerk reflex, also known as the Achilles reflex, occurs when the Achilles tendon is tapped while the foot is dorsiflexed. It is a type of stretch reflex that tests the function of the gastrocnemius muscle and the nerve that supplies it.

      the Achilles is lifting, the leg bone is supplying the load, and the ball of the foot is the fulcrum. the tension in the Achilles is transmitted to the skeletal system (leg bone) Fb = m g + Ft. from the lever ___ 3 Ft = 2 Fb. substituting ___ 3 Ft = 2 (m g + Ft) = 2 m g + 2 Ft. subtracting 2 Ft ___ Ft = 2 m g. substituting back ___ Fb = m g. Reflex Testing in The Laboratory Introductory Background Reflex testing is another way of obtaining information about a patient by health care personnel. Many of us are acquainted with some reflexes by virtue of having physical exams, e.g., patellar reflex (knee jerk), biceps, triceps, corneal and Achilles’ tendon Size: KB.

      #### Summary points Disorders of the Achilles tendon are common in active people—competitive and recreational athletes alike—but they can occur in less active people. As the largest tendon in the body, the Achilles experiences repetitive strain from running, jumping, and sudden acceleration or deceleration, so is susceptible to rupture and degenerative by: Achilles Reflex: Response Time by Condition Introduction Note that while reflexes are involuntary, you can consciously control your muscles and override the reflex Clinical Connection Reflexes are an easy test used to determine health of the nervous system: Absent reflex.

Bilateral absence of Achilles tendon reflex: Introduction. Bilateral absence of Achilles tendon reflex: Bilateral absence of Achilles tendon reflex means that both feet fail to bend downwards in response to the Achilles tendons being tapped with a reflex hammer.

See detailed information below for a list of 10 causes of Bilateral absence of Achilles tendon reflex, Symptom Checker, including. Some student groups will support this hypothesis and the patellar reflex will be faster.

Other student data will support a faster reflex time for the Achilles reflex. If the faster time is for the Achilles, it may be unexpected given that the length of the reflex pathway is greater for the Achilles reflex compared to the Patellar reflex.

Youth and hyperthyroidism are associated with shorter by: Somatosensory symptoms of both feet were observed in only % of patients, but the Achilles tendon reflex, vibration perception, and tactile sense of pressure as assessed by monofilaments were attenuated or lost in %, %, and % of patients, respectively.

Keeping You Up and Moving. While the heel was Achilles’ only flaw, it would be unfair to characterize the Achilles tendon as some sort of brittle piece of tissue. To the contrary, actually – the Achilles tendon can claim the double honor of being both the largest and strongest tendon in the body.
