Running Retraining to Minimize Braking Forces

2017-10-13 16:49:22 | BioPortfolio


The proposed research study aims to investigate whether a gait modification training program to decrease peak braking forces during the stance phase of running will result in a reduction in impact loading and the incidence of running-related injuries among recreational distance runners.

Using Real Time Biofeedback to Alter Running Mechanics

The purposes of this study are 1) to assess foot strike patterns initially, at six months and at one year between two groups of runners attempting to transition to a non-rearfoot strike pa...

Real-time Biofeedback With 7-Tesla MRI for Treatment of Depression

Previous research has shown that modulation of a brain region in rodents, the ventral tegmental area (VTA), improves depressive symptoms. Human research has also shown that VTA self-modula...

Visual Feedback to Improve Balance During Walking

The goal of this research is to determine if real time visual feedback of body movements improves balance control more than walking on a treadmill alone. Individuals participating in this...

Real-time Optimized Biofeedback Utilizing Sport Techniques

This study will identify the most optimal, focused approach for biofeedback in adolescent females at high risk for anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury. A six-week randomized, pre/post-...

Do Young Triathletes Have a Greater Predisposition to Suffer Running Injuries

In running 70% of the lower limb, injuries are produced in the running segment. The vast majority of sports-related musculoskeletal injuries in young athletes are caused by overuse. Previo...

Regular physical activity modulates perceived visual speed when running in treadmill-mediated virtual environments.

In virtual reality, visual speed is usually underestimated relative to locomotor speed. Here we investigated how physical activity and fitness affect perceived visual speed when running in a treadmill...

Advancing Anterior Cruciate Ligament Injury Prevention Using Real-Time Biofeedback for Amplified Sensorimotor Integration.

Reliability of the fluctuations within the stride time series measured in runners during treadmill running to exhaustion.

The fluctuations within stride time series (i.e., stride time variability and complexity) during running exhibit long-range correlation. Detecting the breakdown of the long-range correlation was propo...

Akt Dependent Adult Hippocampal Neurogenesis Regulates the Behavioral Improvement of Treadmill Running to Mice Model of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.

Physical exercise is well-established paradigm for improving adult neurogenesis and brain functions. As considered as an alternative therapeutic strategy, treadmill running could reduce cognitive impa...

How Does Power During Running Change when Measured at Different Time Intervals?

This study aimed to examine how the power output changes while running at a continuous comfortable velocity on a motorized treadmill by comparing running power averaged during different time intervals...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Ultrasonography applying the Doppler effect combined with real-time imaging. The real-time image is created by rapid movement of the ultrasound beam. A powerful advantage of this technique is the ability to estimate the velocity of flow from the Doppler shift frequency.

The therapy technique of providing the status of one's own AUTONOMIC NERVOUS SYSTEM function (e.g., skin temperature, heartbeats, brain waves) as visual or auditory feedback in order to self-control related conditions (e.g., hypertension, migraine headaches).

Field of research that studies mental factors influencing the attainment of athletic skills and athletic performance.

The real or apparent movement of objects through the visual field.

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.
