in SL is caused by increases in height and/or relative vertical impulse. GRFs during the acceleration phase of sprinting largely change as propulsive forces decrease, and braking and vertical forces increase ( 14 ). Moreover, the difference in maximal speed results from the preceding difference in

demands of brief, nonsteady-state—and often high-intensity—accelerations cannot be directly measured. However, this is possible for steady-state incline running, where energy cost increases with slope but, as per running on level ground, is independent of speed at a given slope. 5 Accordingly

-specific psychosocial factors such as the underreporting of concussions in males may contribute to these differences, 3 but there has been limited attention given to the neurophysiological and biomechanical aspects of head acceleration between sexes 4 , 5 in hockey players. Furthermore, most work involving simulated

environment and may not reflect true adaptations that occur in real-world settings. With the use of wearable sensors, on the other hand, fatigue-induced changes in running biomechanics can now be measured in more ecological settings by quantifying alterations in center of mass (CoM) acceleration patterns

magnitude alone, as measured in multiple acceleration of gravity (G), has been reported to be an inconsistent measurement of the severity of injury. 2 , 3 Previous researchers have hypothesized that as athletes are getting bigger, stronger, and faster, the risk of concussion may increase as well. 4 While

-absorbing liner is usually made from expanded polystyrene that crushes and cracks during an impact and then partially rebounds after the impact. 8 The liner protects the head by increasing the distance and duration over which the head decelerates, decreasing the peak force and acceleration experienced by the

, the autocorrelation function of the acceleration of neck and lumbar regions would be useful to assess the symmetry and regularity of gait pre- and post-TKA. The purpose of this study was to clarify the effects of TKA in patients with knee OA on trunk fluctuation, symmetry, and regularity of gait by

derived from the accelerometer component of the microsensor and calculated as the square root of the sum of the squared rate of change in acceleration across the x, y, and z planes multiplied by a scaling factor of 0.01 for ease of use. 10 In addition, inertial movement analysis variables were recorded
