The objectives of the present study were to: 1) extend the use and analysis of the regularity statistic approximate entropy (ApEn)  to voluntary motor performances of rats, and 2) describe how ApEn changes as a function of other biomechanical measures of motor performance including pull force and power spectral density. Because previous studies have shown that vibration affects muscle activity , we also attempted to determine how a mechanical stressor (i.e., vibration) affects motor activity and thus ApEn.
