Individual performance in team-based online games.

Complex real-world challenges are often solved through teamwork. Of special interest are ad hoc teams assembled to complete some task. Many popular multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) video-games adopt this team formation strategy and thus provide a natural environment to study ad hoc teams. Our work examines data from a popular MOBA game, League of Legends, to understand the evolution of individual performance within ad hoc teams. Our analysis of player performance in successive matches of a gaming sess...

Age-related strength loss affects non-stepping balance recovery.

Aging is associated with a higher risk of falls, and an impaired ability to recover balance after a postural perturbation is an important contributing factor. In turn, this impaired recovery ability likely stems from age-related decrements in lower limb strength. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of age-related strength loss on non-stepping balance recovery capability after a perturbation while standing, without constraining movements to the ankle as in prior reports. Two experiments ...

A 9-months multidisciplinary rehabilitation protocol based on early post-operative mobilization following a chronic-degenerative patellar tendon rupture in a professional soccer player: a case report.

Isolated patellar tendon rupture (PTR) is the final stage of a long-standing tendon chronic degeneration. PTR requires immediate repair in order to avoid important muscle retraction and tendon fibrosis. The aim was to describe the effects of a rehabilitation protocol after chronic-degenerative PTR on subjective functional outcomes, knee range of motion (ROM), size, and strength in a professional football player.

Efficacy of Online Multi-Player Versus Single-Player Exergames on Adherence Behaviors Among Children: A Nonrandomized Control Trial.

Exergames have the potential to significantly increase physical activity in children. Studies to date have shown mixed results and often rely on self-reported data. Multi-player gaming may augment participation.

Psychometric Evaluation of 2 New Upper Extremity Functional Strength Tests in Children With Cerebral Palsy.

For children with unilateral spastic cerebral palsy (USCP), reduced muscle strength may lead to activity limitations. However, despite existence of many upper limb strength measures, none measure strength in the context of functional activities in which the strength must be maintained for several seconds.

Optimal Loading for Force Production in the Straight Bar Deadlift: Force-Time Characteristics in Strength-Trained Adults.

Evaluation of the directional relationship between handgrip strength and cognitive function: the Korean Longitudinal Study of Ageing.

recent studies suggest that handgrip strength is linked with cognitive impairment at older ages. However, it remains unclear as to whether muscular strength influences subsequent cognitive performance, or whether lower levels of cognitive function increase the likelihood of muscle strength decline.

Return to Play After an Anterior Cruciate Ligament Injury: Prioritizing Neurological and Psychological Factors of the Decision-Making Algorithm.

Soccer players recovering from anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries have better options for treatment today than they did 25 years ago. Surgical techniques have improved, and rehabilitation protocols have evolved considerably. Although the rehabilitation community is doing a better job of treating this patient population, the evidence does demonstrate that both re-injury and return- to-play (RTP) rates are still suboptimal. Most protocols focus on normalizing strength and range of motion (ROM) and achi...

Challenges of Medical Care Delivery in Professional Sports: Lessons From Professional Baseball.

Team medical management for professional sports teams is a demanding and high-risk activity. Every different sport has unique features and the stresses athletes place on themselves, be it from collisions or repetitive stress, result in specific challenges for the medical team and team organization in general. Injuries in professional sports are costly both to the player and organization. The challenges of managing a professional baseball team exemplify these concerns and correlate well with other profession...

Evidence for a Role of ACTN3 R577X Polymorphism in Football Player's Career Progression.

The aim was to investigate a possible role of the ACTN3 R577X polymorphism in a Brazilian football player's career progression. 2 questions were formulated: 1. Does ACTN3 polymorphism affect the probability of an individual being a professional football player? 2. Does this polymorphism affect the progression of the athlete throughout his career? The study included 353 players from first division Brazilian football clubs in the following categories: under-14 (U-14), U-15, U-17, U-20, and professional (PRO)....

A comparative assessment of static muscular strength among female operative's working in different handicraft occupations in India.

An ergonomic assessment of static muscular strength like hand grip-and pinch strength in handicraft occupation was made. In total, 170 female participants were selected for the case-control study, out of which 120 handicraft and 50 office workers were examined as exposed and control groups. Their maximum static handgrip- and pinch strength were measured using hand and pinch dynamometers. We analyze our findings to indicate static muscular strength varies significantly due to repetitive use of hand tools. Th...

Nickel nanoparticles set a new record of strength.

Material objects with micrometer or nanometer dimensions can exhibit much higher strength than macroscopic objects, but this strength rarely approaches the maximum theoretical strength of the material. Here, we demonstrate that faceted single-crystalline nickel (Ni) nanoparticles exhibit an ultrahigh compressive strength (up to 34 GPa) unprecedented for metallic materials. This strength matches the available estimates of Ni theoretical strength. Three factors are responsible for this record-high strength:...

Multiscale modelling for the heterogeneous strength of biodegradable polyesters.

A heterogeneous method of coupled multiscale strength model is presented in this paper for calculating the strength of medical polyesters such as polylactide (PLA), polyglycolide (PGA) and their copolymers during degradation by bulk erosion. The macroscopic device is discretized into an array of mesoscopic cells. A polymer chain is assumed to stay in one cell. With the polymer chain scission, it is found that the molecular weight, chain recrystallization induced by polymer chain scissions, and the cavities ...

Traumatic oesophageal perforation: a successful management based on the Pittsburgh Perforation Severity Score.

Oesophageal perforation is a severe life-threatening clinical condition with high mortality and morbidity needing rapid interdisciplinary approach to be effectively managed. Recently, on the basis of multicentric retrospective data, we proposed a decision tree for the treatment of oesophageal perforations based on the Pittsburgh Perforation Severity Score (PSS). We now report the first case of a traumatic oesophageal perforation, which was successfully treated according to the application of the PSS decisio...
