Effect of Tuck Index on Impulse Produced during a Squat Jump in Swimmers 2008 856 Knowing what amount of tuck, as measured by tuck index, produces the highest impulse values during the push-off, along with push off phase duration and distance traveled by the center of mass during the push off phase of a squat jump, will help to op...
Comparison of Problem Based Learning and Traditional Lecture Instruction on Critical Thinking, Knowledge, and Application of Strength and Conditioning 2008 5312 The purpose of this research was to compare the effects of problem based learning (PBL) and traditional lecture instruction (TI) courses on critical thinking, knowledge and application of strength and conditioning throughout a semester long collegiat...
Kinematic and kinetic effects of knee and ankle sagittal plane joint restrictions during squatting 2005 1636 "The purpose of this study was to evaluate compensatory biomechanical patterns in the lower extremity created by restricted knee flexion and ankle dorsiflexion when performing squats. Forty two healthy subjects (21 men, 21 women; 22.5 (4.5) years, 7...
Varus/valgus and internal/external rotational knee joint stiffness in males and females 2006 885 "The purpose of this investigation was to establish day to day reliability of varus/valgus and internal/external rotational stiffness measures and then compare stiffnesses between males and females. Twenty healthy college students underwent varus/val...
Effectiveness of cervical spine stabilization during spine boarding of collegiate lacrosse athletes 2006 1293 "This study determined if properly and improperly fitted lacrosse helmets provide adequate stabilization of the head, and therefore the cervical spine, in the spine boarded athlete. A 3 x 3 repeated measures design was used with head to helmet range ...
Estimation of muscle torque impulses and ability to predict high-risk knee joint mechanics during landing maneuvers 2011 728 This research first examined the validity of net knee joint moment estimations, calculated as the difference between quadriceps and hamstrings torques estimated using either an isometric or angle and action specific sEMG/Torque ratio calculated durin...
A preliminary clinical prediction model for upper-extremity injury in collegiate baseball: a single-center retrospective study 2013 289 Context: Evidence-based practice (EBP) has become a point of emphasis in athletic training education and clinical practice. One approach to EBP is utilizing clinical prediction models (CPM) to assist clinicians in the screening, diagnosis, prognosis,...
