Summary of "Simulated Casualty Evacuation Performance Is Augmented by Deadlift Peak Force."

The purpose of the current study was to examine if isometric peak force and rate of force development (RFD) were related to the ability to successfully perform a simulated casualty evacuation task in both unweighted and weighted conditions.

Are peak ground reaction forces related to better sprint acceleration performance?

This study aimed to elucidate whether the peak (maximum) ground reaction force (GRF) can be used as an indicator of better sprint acceleration performance. Eighteen male sprinters performed 60-m maxim...

Concurrent validity of an isokinetic lift test used for admission to the Swedish Armed Forces.

The aim of this study was to assess the concurrent validity of the IsoKai isokinetic lift test peak force (IsoKaiPeak) in comparison to a submaximal 5-10RM deadlift test (5-10RMDL), and to develop an ...

Specific stretchers enhance rapid extraction by tactical medical support teams in mass casualty incidents.

In mass casualty incidents where the threat is on-going, victim evacuation remains a challenge: fast extraction while respecting spinal immobilisation and haemorrhage control. Different devices can be...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Events that overwhelm the resources of local HOSPITALS and health care providers. They are likely to impose a sustained demand for HEALTH SERVICES rather than the short, intense peak customary with smaller scale disasters.

The rotational force about an axis that is equal to the product of a force times the distance from the axis where the force is applied.

Condition in which no acceleration, whether due to gravity or any other force, can be detected by an observer within a system. It also means the absence of weight or the absence of the force of gravity acting on a body. Microgravity, gravitational force between 0 and 10 -6 g, is included here. (From NASA Thesaurus, 1988)

The force applied by the masticatory muscles in dental occlusion.

Force exerted when using the index finger and the thumb. It is a test for determining maximum voluntary contraction force.
