It seems easier to secure research funding in areas where there is a bigger public interest and, consequently, more spectators and money involved, like in football compared with research, for example, in the Paralympic sport of blind football. The Blind Football World Championships also took

One of the main objectives of biomechanists is to evaluate the dynamics (ie, forces and moments) associated with human movements. Experimentally measuring the forces of individual

Even though, to the authors’ knowledge, there has been no study of injury prevalence in cross-country sit-skiing, we

finite literature concerning thermoregulation in Paralympic sport has centered on athletes with a spinal cord injury (SCI) due to their high propensity for thermal strain caused by impaired autonomic function and therefore sudomotor and vasomotor control. 2 Research has characterized the
