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

What is the Importance of Hip Musculature to Load Carriage Walking?

Research Paper Title Lower-limb joint work and power are modulated during load carriage based on load configuration and walking speed. Background Soldiers regularly transport loads weighing >20 kg at slow speeds for long durations. These tasks elicit high energetic costs through increased positive work generated by knee and ankle muscles, which may increase risk of muscular… Read More

Can You Predict Ground Reaction Force from a Hip-Borne Accelerometer during Load Carriage?

Research Paper Title Predicting Ground Reaction Force from a Hip-Borne Accelerometer during Load Carriage. Background Ground reaction forces (GRF) during load carriage differ from unloaded walking. Methods to quantify peak vertical GRF (pGRFvert) of Soldiers walking with loads outside of a laboratory are needed to study GRF during operationally relevant tasks. Therefore, the purpose of… Read More

Groin & Hip Quandries in Sport

“This article has been adapted from a handbook, Groin & Hips: the latest international evidence, 2012, written by the author of this article, primarily for premier league football medical personnel, but also for those involved in other elite sports, in response to the controversy and lack of consensus among clinicians working in this area. On reviewing the… Read More
