Handball is a popular team sport practiced by about 18 million players in more than 150 international federations. 1 Players alternate short bouts of intense activity with longer periods of moderate-intensity movements and actions such as turns, stops, jumps, throws, changes of direction, and one

forces, as well as the child’s body sway while standing and the child’s gait initiation. A computed ratio between the CoM range in the ML and AP directions allowed us to measure the direction in which the CoM movement was more dominant. For example, a ratio greater than 1 indicated that the range of CoM

When presented with visual feedback in a constant and forward-facing direction, current research suggests that head accelerations during running generally remain stable. Busa et al’s experiment involved real-time visual feedback when runners were asked to maintain their gaze on a visual dot at eye

), calculated as the summation of forward, sideways, and vertical accelerations ( Boyd, Ball, & Aughey, 2011 ). It is essentially utilized as a measure of external workload (i.e., biomechanical stress) and can be quantified alongside numbers of changes of direction (CoD), accelerations (ACC), and decelerations

Handball performance depends on several factors, including anthropometrics and physical abilities (particularly jumping, starting and stopping, and changing direction quickly [ 7 , 25 , 26 , 29 , 33 ]). Fast and dynamic movements and hard body contacts are interspersed with low-intensity movements

subcutaneous tissue and muscle stimulation as a product of the tape tension on the skin. 7 In addition to tape tension, the original instructions of the method claim that the direction of application produces a “recoil” movement of the skin. 7 This “recoil” is tension dependent and, hypothetically, stimulates

The sham group received an application very similar to MWM application, but the appropriate force and the optimum direction were absent. 12 The physiotherapist placed one hand on medial malleolus and the other hand over the lateral malleolus without applying any force and

A single researcher demonstrated each test. Then
