assessed in lab settings to quantify skill in national junior, emerging, and national senior fast bowlers. 6 To date, every fast-bowling test has involved the assessment of closed-skill performance. Given that there is a lack of competition between bat and ball with a closed-skill assessment (usually

. Therefore, the aim of this study was to validate the quantification of training load (s-RPE) in an Australian Olympic squad (women’s water polo), assessed with the use of a modified RPE scale collected via a newly developed mobile application (AMS-s-RPE). Methods Subjects Sixteen elite women water polo

quantifying subtle changes. Hop testing is highly prevalent in lower limb rehabilitation, especially post knee surgery or in patellofemoral pain. Measuring quality of landing is challenging for clinicians using hop testing. Laboratory-based systems that quantify balance often require specific fixed

a season to peak for important competitions. 14 – 16 As such, it is important to recognize the most appropriate methods of monitoring training intensity to precisely quantify the TID. Although there remains to be a consensus on the nomenclature and exact nature of the various TID approaches, a

physical effort, cycling is similar to running marathons and swimming. However, there is little information in the literature about the effects of endurance on cardiovascular, renal, immunological, or nervous systems in professional cycling. Our aim, therefore, was to quantify urine NGAL in endurance

Global Positioning System (GPS) technology offer potential to quantify mechanical loading during functional rehabilitative tasks. Recently, mediolateral loading imbalances were highlighted in a case study of ankle sprain injury in elite male soccer. 11 However, to enhance the clinical application of GPS

risk of falling due to higher foot clearance and/or lower foot clearance variability. Therefore, it is important in fall risk assessments to be able to quantify foot clearance in cases where a local minimum of toe height does not exist. There have been several attempts to quantify foot clearance in the

the quantification of the stretch force at various elongation lengths could not be found. Thus, professionals may prescribe a relative stretch length (eg, 50%) based upon clinical experience or personal preference without knowing the amount of stretch or tension force produced. Quantifying the stretch

Techniques have evolved for quantifying human tendon and ligament forces in the lower extremity 1 – 4 ; however, similar systems for the upper extremity are not well described. Friden et al described a technique for measuring tension in the brachioradialis muscle after tendon transfer 5 ; however

quantify the ability of PTs to visually assess movement accurately, 3 there remain questions regarding PTs’ abilities to detect and interpret their qualitative observation consistently and accurately. PTs’ abilities to observe proper form qualitatively during lower extremity functional tasks has been
