The concept of personalized medication according to a person’s physiological, genetical, and biological conditions is on the research agenda of pharmaceutical science. 1. Individuals respond differently to various medical cares, and they may experience more or less benefit/risk associated with particular drugs.
Despite the many positive outcomes associated with youth sport participation, opportunities for involvement remain plagued by inequities associated with factors such as income, race, gender, and geographic location. The comprehensive sport-centric approach (CSCA) is an innovative and unique model of learning...
With the advancement of human movement sciences and footwear technology (e.g., sensor, actuator, and control systems), we envision the development of transformable smart shoes that will be quite common by 2036.
In this project, we aim to develop fabric-based wearable and washable electromyography (EMG) devices. EMG devices have been applied to the study of muscular function and coordination in different movements and postures, in skilled actions as well as during training, such as the track and/or soccer field, as well as gymnastics.
This project will focus on developing and evaluating a novel undergarment soft robotic lower-limb exosuit to: (1) provide advanced robotic assisted rehabilitation therapy to anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injured athletes, (2) provide injury mitigation to athletes by increasing proprioception, and (3) provide resistance to athletes’ joints and muscles to explore the idea of a wearable muscle strengthening exosuit.
The overall goal of this GSI Sport 2036 seed project plan is to study and validate that both the athletes and the general public can benefit from using the low-cost camera-first and non-invasive performance tracking solutions.
Monitoring spine posture during unsupervised therapeutic, athletic and fitness exercise is essential to achieve optimum results. The main objective of this work is to introduce wearable sensors and supporting mobile applications capable of providing biofeedback in real time.
Given the current socio and political occurrences taking place in the US currently, and the feedback we received from the leagues and some brands we spoke with, there is a consensus that this year’s gathering around the ESPN Sports Humanitarian of the Year of looking specifically at youth...
Worldwide young women are dropping out of athletics by the age of 14 at a rate two times higher than their male counterparts (Sabo & Veliz, 2008). A wide range of empirical research has demonstrated sport participation yields significant positive outcomes for young women.
From its American-as-apple-pie birth as an endurance skating competition in the 1930s, to its professional-wrestling-like heyday in the 1970s, roller derby was embraced in twentieth-century pop culture for combining brutality and beauty, especially in its women skaters. Then it went dormant.
