Key to speed? Elite sprinters are unlike other athletes -- deliver forceful punch to ground (8/29/2014)

Key to speed? Elite sprinters are unlike other athletes -- deliver forceful punch to groundThe world's fastest sprinters have a distinctive ability unlike other runners to attack the ground and attain faster speeds, according to new research from Southern Methodist University, Dallas. The new findings indicate that sprinters use a combined limb motion and foot-strike mechanism that enhances speed by elevating foot-ground impact forces. 'The sprinters we tested all used the same mechanism for maximizing force application and sprinting performance,' said lead author of the study Ken Clark. ...> Full Article



Recovery reversal seen in Oregon study of returning concussed athletes (8/28/2014)

Running for life: How speed restricts evolutionary change of the vertebral column (7/24/2014)

Running for life: How speed restricts evolutionary change of the vertebral columnOne of the riddles of mammal evolution is explained: the conservation of the number of trunk vertebrae. Dutch and American researchers show that this conservation is due to the role of speed in survival of fast running mammals. They measured variation of 774 skeletons of fast and slow species. The researchers found that a combination of developmental and biomechanical problems prevents evolutionary change in the number of trunk vertebrae in fast, but not in slow mammals. ...> Full Article

The new evidence also shows that a visual training program can sometimes make the difference between winning and losing. ...> Full Article


Probe could help determine severity of rotator-cuff injuries (2/2/2014)

A new ultrasound probe that has been developed at Clemson University could take some of the guesswork out of determining the severity of rotator-cuff injuries, making it easier for doctors to decide whether patients need surgery. David M. Kwartowitz is leading a team that has been working on a probe that provides tissue measurements down to the millimeter. The device is harmless, and he expects it will be inexpensive enough for just about any doctor to buy. ...> Full Article
