Third, we evaluated the use of the most widely known and used accelerometer algorithm to measure movement and predict energy cost during different activities of daily living across both disease and physical movement profile. We hypothesized that categorizing the

’Brien, Belton, & Issartel, 2016a , 2016b ), at both a fundamental and functional movement level ( Abraham, Sannasi, & Nair, 2015 ; Cook, Burton, & Hoogenboom, 2006a , 2006b ). Although there is acceptance that movement competency is multidimensional in nature ( Rudd et al., 2015 ; Whitehead, 2010 ), there

Clinical Scenario Historically, athletic participation required the completion of a functional movement screening during the preparticipation examination, which provided valuable information to clinicians regarding injury prevention. However, in recent years, functional movement screenings have

players. 4 RT is often assessed clinically in a stationary manner, but during sport, athletes react in a highly dynamic environment with ever-changing physical and mental stimuli. Functional RT is not correlated with clinically assessed RT, 5 but the reliability of this functional RT battery is unclear

In alignment with the World Health Organization (WHO) and US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, this paper identifies adults with functional disabilities, broadly, characterized by difficulty in seeing, hearing, walking

Although an abundance of literature exists focusing on the efficacy of braces in preventing ankle sprains in young, healthy, and physically active populations, there is a scarcity of evidence specific to the impact of these apparatuses on functional performance; therefore

contraction occurs during leg flexion. 12 , 13 Thus, it is crucial to determine the affected muscle groups’ contraction mode before planning the isokinetic exercise program in rehabilitation. The use of functional hamstring/quadriceps (H/Q) ratio (Heccentric/Qconcentric [Hecc/Qcon], Hcon/Qecc) is mostly

Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is a progressive neurodegenerative process in which brain cells are destroyed, causing a loss of cognitive functions, physical fitness, and functional activities ( Nelson & Tabet, 2015 ). Its high prevalence ( Alzheimer’s Disease International, 2015 ), together with the

Biomechanically assessing functional movement may allow for prediction and prevention of musculoskeletal injury 1 – 3 and is useful to assess return to sport readiness. 4 , 5 Previous work has thoroughly examined kinematic and kinetic outcomes during landing, 6 – 9 hopping, 5 , 10 and cutting

negative response. However, if fatigue accumulates and an athlete is not able to recover from a training stimulus, he or she can develop a state of functional overreaching, nonfunctional overreaching, or even a full-blown overtraining syndrome. 4 Although an athlete, in most cases, recovers from a training
