Is a a High BMI associated with Heat-Related Illnesses among Conscripts undergoing Basic Training in Thailand?

Research Paper Title Personal risk factors associated with heat-related illness among new conscripts undergoing basic training in Thailand. Background Cases of exertional heat stroke have been reported every year during basic training for Royal Thai Army (RTA) conscripts. Prevention is an important strategy to reduce the incidence of heat-related illnesses. The researchers conducted a study… Read More


Does Primarily Hip-Borne Load Carriage Negatively Alter Joint Kinetics?

Research Paper Title Primarily hip-borne load carriage does not alter biomechanical risk factors for overuse injuries in soldiers. Background To determine the effects of different body armour types, carried loads, and walking speeds on trunk and lower-limb joint biomechanics. Within-subjects repeated measures to determine the effects of different body armour types, carried loads, and walking… Read More

Posture: Asymmetric Loads & Uneven Ground

Research Paper Title Carrying asymmetric loads while walking on an uneven surface. Background Individuals often carry asymmetric loads over challenging surfaces such as uneven or irregular terrain, which may require a higher demand for postural control than walking on an even surface. The purpose of this study was to assess postural stability in the medial-lateral… Read More

Does Resistance Training Improve the Structure of Coordination in the Control of a Well-Defined Motor Objective?

Research Paper Title Not all brawn, but some brain. Strength gains after training alters kinematic motor abundance in hopping. Background The effects of resistance training on a muscle’s neural, architectural, and mechanical properties are well established. However, whether resistance training can positively change the coordination of multiple motor elements in the control of a well-defined… Read More

What are the Changes in Postural Sway& Gait Characteristics as a Consequence of Anterior Load Carriage?

Research Paper Title Changes in postural sway and gait characteristics as a consequence of anterior load carriage. Background Anterior load carriage represents a common daily and occupational activity. Carrying loads in front of the body could potentially increase instability during standing and walking. This study examined the effects of anterior load carriage on postural sway… Read More

What is the Influence of Proximal Trunk Borne Load on Lower Limb Countermovement Joint Dynamics?

Research Paper Title Influence of proximal trunk borne load on lower limb countermovement joint dynamics. Background Vertical jumping involves coordinating the temporal sequencing of angular motion, moment, and power across multiple joints. Studying the biomechanical coordination strategies that differentiates loaded from unloaded vertical jumping may better inform training prescription for athletes needing to jump with… Read More

Why the Human Heart needs Exercise

Out of all the organs of the human body, nothing is more fascinating and remarkable than the human heart. It is small, just as the same size as the fist, in proportion to the human body. But as small as it is, it is also a quite formidable organ. It is powerful enough to pump… Read More
