The Effect Of Static Stretching And Order Of Warm-Up On The Isokinetic Peak Torque Of The Knee Extensors, Eric J. Sobolewski 2010 Utah State University

The Effect Of Static Stretching And Order Of Warm-Up On The Isokinetic Peak Torque Of The Knee Extensors, Eric J. Sobolewski

All Graduate Theses and Dissertations

The purposes of these studies were to determine if an acute static stretch influenced isokinetic peak torque (IPT), and to examine if the order in which the warm up routine was performed affected peak knee extension torque. Twenty trained college male students performed maximal isokinetic knee extensions under four conditions: a control consisting of no stretching, a stretch only trial, jog then stretch, and stretch then jog conditions. Each stretch was held for a total volume of 360 s. Measurements were taken on a Biodex System 3 isokinetic dynamometer at speeds of 60º s-1 and 300º s-1. Data were analyzed ...


The Effects Of Aquatic Exercise On Physiological And Biomechanical Responses, Matthew M. Denning 2010 Utah State University

The Effects Of Aquatic Exercise On Physiological And Biomechanical Responses, Matthew M. Denning

All Graduate Theses and Dissertations

Due to recent advances in aquatic research, technology, and facilities, many modes of aquatic therapy now exist. These aquatic modes assist individuals (e.g., osteoarthritis patients) in the performance of activities that may be too difficult to complete on land. However, the biomechanical requirements of each aquatic therapy mode may elicit different physiological and functional responses. Therefore, the purpose of this thesis was to: (a) provide a review of the physiological and biomechanical differences between aquatic and land based exercises, and (b) examine the acute effects of underwater and land treadmill exercise on oxygen consumption (VO2), rating of perceived exertion ...


Women Bound To Be Active (Year 3 & 4): Can A Book Club Help Women Overcome Barriers To Physical Activity And Improve Self-Worth?, Jennifer L. Huberty, Jamie Vener, Lynda Ransdell, Laura Schulte, Melissa A. Budd, Yong Gao 2010 University of Nebraska Omaha

Women Bound To Be Active (Year 3 & 4): Can A Book Club Help Women Overcome Barriers To Physical Activity And Improve Self-Worth?, Jennifer L. Huberty, Jamie Vener, Lynda Ransdell, Laura Schulte, Melissa A. Budd, Yong Gao

Kinesiology Faculty Publications and Presentations

Little progress has been made toward increasing physical activity (PA) in women. This study aimed to determine if an 8-month theory-based book club intervention (Women Bound to Be Active) was effective in increasing: (a) self-worth, (b) benefits relative to barriers to PA, and (c) PA in women (n=51). Findings suggested a book-club was effective for improving: self-worth, the benefits relative to barriers to PA, and possibly participation in PA. This is an innovative model to help women become more active and learn skills that may enable them to be active on their own long after a PA program has ...


The Effects Of Whole Body Vibration On Bone Mineral Density For A Person With A Spinal Cord Injury: A Case Study, Ronald Davis, Charlotte Sanborn, David Nichols, David M. Bazett-Jones, Eric Dugan 2010 Texas Woman's University

The Effects Of Whole Body Vibration On Bone Mineral Density For A Person With A Spinal Cord Injury: A Case Study, Ronald Davis, Charlotte Sanborn, David Nichols, David M. Bazett-Jones, Eric Dugan

Kinesiology Faculty Publications and Presentations

Bone mineral density (BMD) loss is a medical concern for individuals with spinal cord injury (SCI). Concerns related to osteoporosis have lead researchers to use various interventions to address BMD loss within this population. Whole body vibration (WBV) has been reported to improve BMD for postmenopausal women and suggested for SCI. The purpose of this case study was to identify the effects of WBV on BMD for an individual with SCI. There were three progressive phases (standing only, partial standing, and combined stand with vibration), each lasting 10 weeks. Using the least significant change calculation, significant positive changes in BMD ...


A Survey Of Lymphoedema Practitioners Across The Us., Jane M. Armer, Electra D. Paskett, Mei R. Fu, Joseph L. Feldman, Robin Shook, Melanie K. Schneider, Bob R. Stewart, Janice N. Cormier 2010 University of Missouri

A Survey Of Lymphoedema Practitioners Across The Us., Jane M. Armer, Electra D. Paskett, Mei R. Fu, Joseph L. Feldman, Robin Shook, Melanie K. Schneider, Bob R. Stewart, Janice N. Cormier

Robin Shook

An online survey was developed by the American Lymphedema Framework Project (ALFP) executive and research committees to assess the current scope of practice in lymphoedema treatment in the US. The analysis included responses from 415 therapists from 46 states. Respondents typically had a background in physical or occupational therapy. Nearly all reported having completed a 135-hour training course on lymphoedema treatment and management. Treatment options most often reported were comprehensive decongestive therapy (CDT), exercise/movement, risk-reduction education, and skin care.
