Distance running fitness is commonly assessed using metabolic testing (MT). During MT, the runner must wear a mask that covers the nose and mouth. It is unclear if this increased challenge alters running kinematics and/or stride-to-stride variability (SSV). In this study we thoroughly assess the sagittal plane lower body joint angles.

Long-distance running has become increasingly popular during the past decades. Many running patients pose questions to their orthopaedic surgeons regarding risks, benefits, and running techniques. Thi...
The stiffness of muscle-tendon units and of tendons in the lower legs plays important roles in sprinting and long-distance running. However, the association of muscle stiffness with sprinting and runn...
Differences in locomotor biomechanics between walking and running provide fundamental information about human ambulation. Joint mechanical impedance is a biomechanical property that governs the body's...
In previous preclinical studies, low (non-burning) doses of ultraviolet radiation (UVR) limited weight gain and metabolic dysfunction in mice fed a high-fat diet. Here, we explored the effects of low-...

Several studies performed in elite endurance athletes have shown that running performance may be determined by a low fat mass in the overall population. The "Course de l'Escalade" occurs ...
The purpose of this study is to determine the effect of prolonged effort in long distance running on the biomechanical bilateral asymmetry in the lower limbs of trans tibial amputee runnin...
Running is a natural part of human locomotion and humans have been running for million of years. In modern society, running has become a popular way of exercise and is undertaken by many p...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether in healthy subjects listening to music while running influences the ground pressure forces, the vertical loading and, overall, the running...
The purpose of this study is: i) to determine if maximal oxygen uptake in downhill running is significantly different versus flat or uphill running, and ii) to compare cardiorespiratory an...
An activity in which the body is propelled by moving the legs rapidly. Running is performed at a moderate to rapid pace and should be differentiated from JOGGING, which is performed at a much slower pace.
The distance from the sole to the crown of the head with body standing on a flat surface and fully extended.
External decompression applied to the lower body. It is used to study orthostatic intolerance and the effects of gravitation and acceleration, to produce simulated hemorrhage in physiologic research, to assess cardiovascular function, and to reduce abdominal stress during childbirth.
A neuropsychological test designed to assess EXECUTIVE FUNCTION typically assigned to the FRONTAL LOBE (e.g., abstract thinking, and strategic planning). The subjects are asked to sort numbered response cards according to different principles and to alter their approach during testing.
The act of knowing or the recognition of a distance by recollective thought, or by means of a sensory process which is under the influence of set and of prior experience.
