In order to determine whether joint position exerts a powerful influence on length-tension regulation in multiarticulate wrist flexors, three wrist positions (neutral, flexion and extension) and four levels of flexor contraction [0%, 10%, 20% and 30% maximum voluntary contraction (MVC)] were manipulated. There were significant differences in H-reflex amplitudes according to wrist positions and levels of flexor contraction. H-reflex increased linearly as a function of contraction in all three wrist positions. H-reflex was consistently larger in the wrist flexion than in the wrist extension position. The strength of the relationship (omega2) indicated that wrist position had a greater effect on H-reflex than force of muscle contraction. The interaction between wrist flexors contraction and joint position was significant only in the wrist flexion position. Trend analysis showed that, in the wrist flexion position, a low level of contraction was sufficient to maximally facilitate the H-reflex; however, a quadratic component was seen at higher contraction levels. The above findings may reflect the length-tension relationship of the multiarticulate wrist flexors. Therefore, this paper will discuss the functional implications related to the larger H-reflex in flexion position and the depressed H-reflex in the wrist extension position.
