prioritizes as economically valuable may differ from another, and the metrics that are most informative for decision makers will vary accordingly. Therefore, there is a need to identify and prioritize key “non-health” economic indicators as the basis for (1) informing a strategic research agenda, (2

it may be tempting for coaches to use RSI as an indicator of K vert , the data from this study illustrate that the strength of the relationship between K vert and RSI will largely depend on the strength of the relationship between CT and RSI. The differences in correlations between the male and

study sought to investigate the impact of sit-only, sit–stand, and treadmill desk conditions on psychobiological indicators of work productivity. Specifically, we assessed brain activation during an attention task, recorded continuously via electroencephalography (EEG) at the end of workdays spent in an

Variation in the timing indicators separating sit-to-stand (STS) into movement phases complicates both research comparisons and clinical applications. The purpose of this study was to use kinetic reference standards to identify accurate kinematic and kinetic indicators for STS movement analysis such that consistent indicators might be used for STS from varied initial postures. Healthy adults performed STS using 4 foot placements: foot-neutral, foot-back, right-staggered, and left-staggered. Kinetic and kinematic data were collected from force platforms and an 8-camera video system. Initiation, seat-off, vertical posture, and termination were detected with 5% start and 7.5% end thresholds for changes in kinetic and kinematic STS indicators. Timing differences between kinetic and kinematic indicator time points and the reference vertical seated reaction force end point (seatoff) were determined. Kinematic indicators were compared with selected kinetic indicators using timing differences, statistical similarity, and internal consistency measures. Our results suggest that a single force platform system measuring vertical GRF or a simple camera system to evaluate the shoulder marker position and velocity can accurately and consistently detect STS initiation, seat-off, and vertical posture. In addition, these suggested STS indicators for initiation, seat-off, and vertical posture were not dependent upon foot placement.
