wheelchair curling. These investigations would provide unprecedented insights into the physical demands of this Paralympic sport. 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

prevention is developing a thorough understanding of potential contributing factors. 6 The high rate of lower-extremity musculoskeletal injuries in athletes is not surprising considering the physical demands of sports. Even a routine maneuver such as a plant-and-cut can result in impact forces that are over

, so that I’m no longer focused on the task. Under these circumstances, it affects me negatively. Moreover, in situations like exercises with high physical demands, mind wandering helps me not to think about the exercise and not to feel fatigue or pain. So, mind wandering can have positive and negative
