Validation Of A Single Channel Eeg For The Athlete: A Machine Learning Protocol To Accurately Detect Sleep Stages, Kayla Thompson, Kamil Celoch, Frankie Pizzo, Ana I. Fins, Jaime Tartar

NeuroSports

There is a large and growing movement towards the use of wearable technologies for sleep assessment. This trend is largely due to the desire for comfortable, burden free, and inexpensive technology. In tandem, given the competitive nature of professional athletes enduring high training load, sleep is often jeopardized which can result in adverse outcomes. Wearable devices hold the promise of increasing the ease of monitoring sleep in athletes which can inform health and recovery status, as well as aid performance optimization. However, wearable devices typically lack sufficient validity to assess sleep – and especially sleep stages. To address this concern, the ...


Can Learning Be Enhanced With Active Seating?, Judy Beard, Kirk Mathias 2021 Central Washington University

Can Learning Be Enhanced With Active Seating?, Judy Beard, Kirk Mathias

All Faculty Scholarship for the College of Education and Professional Studies

Overweightness continues to increase at an exponential rate in children. This coupled with the demand to increase academic time in elementary schools has contributed to efforts to discover solutions that meet both challenges. Potential solutions are movement curricula and active seating options. However, little has been published relative to best practices of their implementation. Therefore, the purpose of this paper is to discuss the lessons learned while utilizing pedal desks in first and second grade classrooms as stations and whole class seating. Additionally, two different types of heart rate monitors (Polar Oh1 and IHT Spirit) were employed, in an attempt ...


Temperature Changes Seen In Lower Extremities After Cpn Local Anesthetic Block, Lora Asberry 2021 Kennesaw State University

Temperature Changes Seen In Lower Extremities After Cpn Local Anesthetic Block, Lora Asberry

Symposium of Student Scholars

Many older patients often suffer from walking issues such as Drop Foot. Drop Foot is caused by the malfunction of nerves in the foot, resulting in the loss of control of the front foot muscle. Within all of our patients, there has been a common fibular palsy, caused by the entrapment of the peroneal nerve. Due to this, they cannot lift up their foot. Some cases are permanent, while others are temporary. In the temporary cases, we have indicated a Phoenix Sign. The Phoenix Sign indicates that a nerve, presumed to be dead, has the capability to be recessed back ...


Fatigue-Induced Sex Differences For Explosive Neuromuscular Characteristics Of The Plantar Flexors, Ben Dalton 2021 Kennesaw State University

Fatigue-Induced Sex Differences For Explosive Neuromuscular Characteristics Of The Plantar Flexors, Ben Dalton

Symposium of Student Scholars

Previous research on fatigue using isometric contractions suggests that females are more fatigue resistant than males, but less is clear regarding fatigue induced by dynamic contractions. PURPOSE: To determine sex differences for explosive voluntary neuromuscular characteristics of the plantar flexors (PFs) during a dynamic fatiguing task. METHODS: Recreationally active males (n=14; 22.4±2.2 yrs) and females (n=15; 20.9±2.5 yrs) performed a fatiguing task of the PFs consisting of 60 maximal isotonic contractions at 30% of their maximal isometric strength using a dynamometer. Peak power (PP), optimal velocity (OV), and optimal torque (OT) were ...


Chair Rise Kinetics And Correlates Of Performance In Young And Older Males, Tyler Smith 2021 Kennesaw State University

Chair Rise Kinetics And Correlates Of Performance In Young And Older Males, Tyler Smith

Symposium of Student Scholars

Purpose: To compare chair rise kinetics in young (YM) and older (OM) males, and determine correlates of chair rise performance. METHODS: YM (n=15, age =20.7±2.2 yrs) and OM (n=15, age=71.6±3.9yrs) performed three trials of a single chair rise as quickly as possible on a force plate and the vertical ground reaction force (VGRF) signal was analyzed. Peak VGRF (PF), as well as peak (100 ms rolling average), early (minimum VGRF to 50% PF), late (50% PF to PF), and overall (minimum VGRF to PF) rate of force development (RFD; Δforce/Δtime ...


Age-Related Reduction In High-Velocity Power And Myofiber Morphology And Composition, Ben Dalton 2021 Kennesaw State University

Age-Related Reduction In High-Velocity Power And Myofiber Morphology And Composition, Ben Dalton

Symposium of Student Scholars

Power is diminished more dramatically at higher contraction velocities in older adults. It has been suggested that this may reflect age-related changes in single myofiber morphology or composition. PURPOSE: To examine power, muscle activation, and single myofiber morphology and composition between young (YM) and older (OM) males. METHODS: Power, or torque × velocity, was recorded during isokinetic knee extensions at 60°·s-1 and 180°·s-1 in healthy, untrained YM (n=15; 20.7±2.2 yrs) and OM (n=15; 71.6±3.9 yrs). The relative increase in power from 60°·s-1 to 180°·s-1 was ...

Accumulated Oxygen Deficit During Arm Cranking In Hypoxia: A Bayesian Perspective And Methodological Considerations, Tristan Starling-Smith, David Boffey, Michael La Monica, Jeffrey R. Stout, David H. Fukuda

International Journal of Exercise Science

International Journal of Exercise Science 14(3): 1090-1098, 2021. The purpose of this investigation was to observe the effects of normobaric hypoxia on accumulated oxygen deficit (AOD) with evaluation using both Bayesian and Frequentist analyses. Eighteen recreationally active men performed a graded exercise test (GXT) in normobaric normoxia (N; FiO2~20%) and normobaric hypoxia (H; FiO2~14%) to determine peak power output (PPO). Time to exhaustion trials were later conducted at 110% and 120% PPO under both N, and H. AOD and %AN (% anaerobic energy contribution) were calculated in three conditions: N, H, and H using the N regression equation ...


Relationships Between Absolute And Relative Lower-Body Power And Foot Pursuit Ability In Law Enforcement Recruits, Robert G. Lockie, Robin Marc Orr, Joseph Dulla, J. Jay Dawes 2021 California State University, Fullerton

Relationships Between Absolute And Relative Lower-Body Power And Foot Pursuit Ability In Law Enforcement Recruits, Robert G. Lockie, Robin Marc Orr, Joseph Dulla, J. Jay Dawes

International Journal of Exercise Science

International Journal of Exercise Science 14(3): 1078-1089, 2021. An essential job task for law enforcement officers is a foot pursuit. Lower-body power should aid foot pursuit ability; however, there has been minimal investigation of this relationship. This study investigated relationships between absolute and relative lower-body power measured by the vertical jump (VJ) with the 75-yard pursuit run (75PR), which is a change-of-direction (COD) speed test that simulates a foot pursuit in law enforcement recruits. Data from 487 male and 95 female recruits who completed the VJ and 75PR prior to academy training was analyzed. VJ variables included VJ height ...


Reliability And Validity Of The Onpoint System For Quantifying Performance Of The Star Excursion Balance Test, Adam Redgrift 2021 Western University

Reliability And Validity Of The Onpoint System For Quantifying Performance Of The Star Excursion Balance Test, Adam Redgrift

Undergraduate Student Research Internships Conference

The Star Excursion Balance Test (SEBT) is a clinical method of assessing dynamic balance in healthy adults and athletes1. Furthermore, this functional test may be extended to the examination of lower extremity injury, such as ankle instability, in injured populations2. The ‘ONPoint System’ is a tool developed by Dr. Jacob Reeves, which attempts to reduce barriers for clinicians seeking to use the SEBT. Before widespread implementation, the ONPoint system must first be examined in terms of both its validity and reliability. To do this, measurements taken from the OnPoint mat were compared to data obtained from a pressure mapping device ...

The Influence Of The Social Determinants Of Health On Para-Sports Involvement Throughout The Caribbean And Americas, Laura Misener 2021 Western University

The Influence Of The Social Determinants Of Health On Para-Sports Involvement Throughout The Caribbean And Americas, Laura Misener

Undergraduate Student Research Internships Conference

As the number of individuals with a disability grows worldwide, the Paralympic Games and para-sports have seen a growth in participation (WHO, 2011). However, international sporting competitions including the Paralympic Games remain dominated by developed countries (Andreff, 2001). In the last Paralympic Games, the USA, Canada, and Brazil made up nearly 70% of participants from the North and South American region with 17 of the 28 committees sending five or less participants (Maleske & Sant, 2020). The present study investigates the social and cultural determinants in the Caribbean and Americas of para-sport participation in the region and their relation to para-sport involvement. This paper presents a thematic analysis of semi-structured interviews conducted with regional committee executives and athletes to better understand how social and health determinants impact para-sport involvement. Analysis indicated there are widespread challenges to involvement in sport experienced in the Caribbean and America’s region. These include: minimal financial support and capacity; limited opportunity within educational systems; a general unfamiliarity with para-sport that is combined with a mainstream negative perception of disability; and several structural barriers reducing accessibility. These ...


Development Of A Novel Haptic Feedback System For Gait Training Applications, Mohsen Alizadeh Noghani 2021 University of Maine

Development Of A Novel Haptic Feedback System For Gait Training Applications, Mohsen Alizadeh Noghani

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

Until recently, study and correction of motor or gait functions required costly sensors and measurement setups (e.g., optical motion capture systems) which were only available in laboratories or clinical environments. However, due to (1) the growing availability and affordability of inertial measurement units (IMUs) with high accuracy, and (2) progress in wireless, high bandwidth, and energy-efficient networking technologies such as Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), it is now possible to measure and provide feedback in real-time for biomechanical parameters outside of those specialized settings. To enable gait training without an expert who can provide verbal feedback, augmented feedback, which is ...

Reduced Injury Prevalence In Soccer Athletes Following Gps Guided Acclimatization, Montgomery Bertschy, Jeffrey Howard, Sakiko Oyama, Kelly Cheever

International Journal of Exercise Science

International Journal of Exercise Science 14(7): 1070-1077, 2021. GPS technology has been used to retrospectively correlate injury risk to changes in training load, however the use of GPS technology to plan and monitor training load over an acclimatization period to prevent musculoskeletal injury remains unexplored. This article reports the utility of GPS technology to help develop and monitor incremental increases in training load while transitioning from off-season to in season to reduce musculoskeletal injury. A series of daily minimum standards were established based on observed training loads in year 1 to gradually acclimate soccer athletes over a 5-week period ...
