. Recent research from Chiari and colleagues provided experimental evidence that in a bipedal stance, anthropometric parameters such as body height, body weight, and foot width had an impact on balance control when the postural sway was evaluated through Center of Pressure (CoP) measures. This led the

collected in both an open-heeled, double-legged stance and a single-leg stance on the participant’s dominant leg. Dynamic balance measures were collected using the commercially-available Y Balance Test (YBT) (Functional Movement Systems Inc., Chatham, VA). The YBT is a portable assessment of dynamic balance

-cut, and ran between cones along the line placed at 45° to the left of the line of progression. Each subject performed 3 trials, with a trial considered “good” if the subject’s approach speed fell within the 4.5 to 5.5 m/s limit and the foot landed within the stance/pivot area necessary to successfully

strategy based on vertical ground reaction impulse (vGRI). This variable represents the cumulative load applied vertically to the lower limb throughout stance, but does not require real-time inverse dynamics calculations, establishing a low barrier to adoption. We theorize that vGRI could be an effective

–ground collision during running ( Derrick et al., 1998 ), leading to high ground reaction forces during the stance phase of running. The events surrounding these collisions are the main source of impact shock, which is transmitted through the leg and rest of the body ( Gruber et al., 2014 ). One important effect

hypothesized that subjects exhibiting MKD would demonstrate decreased gluteal muscle activity compared with subjects with healthy movement patterns, and that most notable differences would be at the Gmed during the stance phase of gait. Methods Design For this descriptive laboratory study, bilateral muscle

limb while in a single-limb stance on a centralized platform. It was developed from the star excursion balance test (SEBT) in an attempt to address common sources of error and method variation noted in the SEBT ( Plisky, Gorman, Butler, Underwood, & Elkins, 2009 ). The SEBT has been shown to be a valid

An example of an item on the survey was “I believe transgender athletes should have to compete with the sex in which they were born.” Giving the survey on the first day of the semester allowed students to provide

comprehensive understanding of PAD causal mechanisms is needed to promote improved functional outcomes. A notable consequence of PAD is altered spatiotemporal gait parameters. Patients with PAD have been reported to walk with decreased step length, cadence, and velocity and with increased stance time and step
