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.
Hydration status may differ between races. Hispanic and black adolescents have consistently higher urine osmolality than white adolescents, which indicates that this population could be more frequently dehydrated (Kenney et al. 2015). Dehydration, even moderately (1%), may lead to impaired exercise performance (Bardis et al. 2013).
Athletes competing at the collegiate level report a lesser quality of life compared to non-athletes. A deficiency in nutritious foods contributes to poor physiological health, however more information is needed about overall quality of life in relation to nutrition.
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.
